A Garfield County Open Space Conservation Question was on the November 6, 2012 ballot in Garfield County.

This measure seeks to initiative an open space conservation program in the county as well as implement a sales tax at a rate of .25 percent to pay for conservation programs. The sales tax would go towards purchasing and preserving land. If approved, it is estimated that around $2 million a year would be raised for the program through the tax. A survey was undertaken in June, asking residents if they would support an open space program in the county. The survey showed that around 77 percent of residents polled would support the program.[1]
