ABOUT THE AGRICULTURAL SECURITY COMMITTEE
Agricultural Security Areas are intended to promote more permanent and viable farming operations over the long term by strengthening the farming community’s sense of security in land use and the right to farm. Agricultural Security Areas are created by local municipalities in cooperation with individual landowners who agree to collectively place at least 250 acres in an agricultural security area.
1,279 acres are currently in the program representing 3.3% of the total land area of the Township.
