colorado state land board
In 1876, the Colorado Constitution created the Colorado State Board of Land Commissioners (State Land Board), which manages lands that the Federal Government granted to Colorado in public trust. The State Land Board is the second-largest landowner in Colorado, with 2.8 million surface acres and 4.0 million mineral estate acres. A dual mission guides State Land Board management of these assets: to produce reasonable and consistent income over time, and to provide sound stewardship of the state trust assets. The lands are held in eight public land trusts, which benefit public schools and public institutions. State Land Board revenue entirely funds its operations, and the agency does not rely on tax dollars. The State Land Board's Strategic Plan is used as a framework to guide the Board and Staff in achieving agency objectives and goals.
