Request that your Agricultural Land is Added to an Ag District

Include your property in an Ag District

It's almost the time of the year, for owners of agricultural land to request that they join an agricultural district. Smile

Why may you want to add your ag land to an ag district?

The Program is based on a combination of landowner incentives and protections, all of which are designed to forestall the conversion of farmland to non-agricultural uses. Benefits include protections against overly-restrictive local laws, government-funded acquisition or construction projects, and private-nuisance suits involving agricultural practices.

For 30 days in January you may submit a "Request for Landowner Inclusion" form to the Cattaraugus County Department of Economic Development, Planning and Tourism.
