Farmland Protection

The county’s farmland protection plan takes a strong economic development approach: it focuses on the importance of encouraging sector growth and enterprise development while supporting county and local farmland protection efforts. It includes a SWOT analysis and market segment summary, and an analysis of local agricultural economic conditions. It also examines land use trends and implications for farmland protection. It offers a number of recommendations addressing economic development, business development, land use, programmatic considerations, and budget; each recommendation is accompanied by a number of action steps, a list of implementing entities, budget considerations, issue priority ranking, and funding resource suggestions.
