The 2017 Spring Symposium will focus on the rising popularity of agritourism in the State of Kansas and the relationships among these business owners/operators, planners, and state and local officials. Participants will have a chance to tour three locations that represent common agritourism activities including a farm winery, you-pick-it produce farms, and event barns. What makes these activities successful in business and as good neighbors? In addition to touring these businesses while discussing their unique challenges for planning departments, a presentation and panel discussion will be held featuring agritourism business owners, state tourism officials, and local planning officials from two separate areas of the state with different development characteristics. The focus of the discussion will be on the challenges of accommodating agritourism and potential strategies for planners to prepare for those challenges.
