Panel to study Cone Ranch sale

TAMPA - A plan to preserve publicly owned Cone Ranch by selling most of it into private ownership will be studied by a panel appointed by Hillsborough County commissioners. Commissioners voted unanimously Wednesday morning to create a committee to study the plan by the Environmental and Conservation Group, a group of private investors hoping to broker sales and conservation agreements for 12,000 acres of the ranch near Plant City. The group would earn a fee for brokering the sales and crafting environmental protections for the parcels.
