Batavia, NY, Comprehensive Plan

The town’s 2007 comprehensive plan addresses farmland protection. The Agricultural and Farmland chapter sets four goals, one of which is the preservation of a large, contiguous area of high-quality farmland to ensure continued farming within the town. The plan inventories the town’s agricultural resources and references the county’s farmland protection plan recommendations. It reviews issues and opportunities, lists available tools and techniques for retaining farmland and supporting agricultural viability, and lists seven recommended actions for meeting those goals.
