  • Deadline to add agricultural parcels set

    • email print
  • HERKIMER Pursuant to an amendment in the Agricultural Districts Law allowing counties to set a 30-day window each year for new parcels to enter existing agricultural districts, the Herkimer County Legislature has established the month of January as the 30-day period within which a landowner may submit a request for inclusion of land in a certified agricultural district.
    Acting upon the recommendations of the Agricultural and Farmland Protection Board, the county Legislature recognizes the important role agriculture plays in the county and sees this yearly inclusion period as a means to promote and protect agriculture within the county.
    For additional information or to submit applications, interested landowners may contact the county Legislature at 867-1108 or the Herkimer County Soil and Water Conservation District at 866-2520, ext. 3.
