New York State Agriculture and Markets Law empowers counties to create Agricultural and Farmland Protection Boards with a broad-based membership to bring together farmers and government officials, bring broader community goals to oversight of agricultural districts, bring appreciation of agriculture’s needs back to the broader community, and build bridges and bring together diverse perspectives.
Agricultural and Farmland Protection Boards may recommend the creation and renewal of agricultural districts, comment on “notices of intent” to undertake development projects in agricultural districts, and guide, assess and approve Agricultural and Farmland Protection Plans.
The Agricultural and Farmland Protection Board (AFPB) will meet on Wednesday, November 10, 2021, 6:30PM at CCE-Columbia-Greene, 6055 NY-23 Acra, NY to discuss the 2021 ‘Annual Review’ of Greene County’s Agricultural District No. 124 in accordance with Article 25-AA of the Agriculture & Markets Law.
