03 Dec New! Protecting Farmland: an Introductory Review of Select Strategies.
This Just Out – Friends of Clark County publishes, Protecting Farmland: an Introductory Review of Select Strategies. This scholarly paper describes and provides an analysis of a few programs and policies that can help preserve and protect farmland in Clark County. Not intended to be an exhaustive list, rather Friends have honed in on a few strategies that have been successful in other areas and some that could be strengthened in Clark County.
Friends of Clark County hope is that Protecting Farmland: an Introductory Review of Select Strategies, can help inform the work of the county’s anticipated formation of an Agricultural Advisory Committee. Our goal is to help assure local food remains a vibrant part of our community.
This research paper by Jude Wait was funded by a small extracurricular contract with FOCC for the policy review.
