The Maine Public Lands Access Purchase Bond Issue, also known as Question 10, was on the November 3, 1987 ballot in Maine as a legislatively-referred bond question, where it was approved. The measure issued $35 million in bonds over four years for the purchase of public land access. The land acquisitions were to focus on sites with outstanding recreational, scenic, natural or wildlife values. The expenditure of the proceeds of the bonds were the purview of the Director of the State Planning Office until the creation of a Recreation and Natural Heritage Board for acquisition of lands for conservation, outdoor recreation and wildlife.
