Position:Watch
Status:Policy Committees
Summary:
This bill authorizes a city or county to elect to develop an agricultural land component of the open-space element.  The elective element has many specific requirements, including, among other things, mapping, using specified data, establishing comprehensive goals, policies, and objectives to support the long-term protection of agricultural land; and identifying and establishing a set of feasible implementation measures designed to promote those goals, policies, and objectives. The value is that cities and counties that have elected to develop this component would be eligible for funds from the Department of Conservation.
