Full meeting of legislature to follow, read agenda

From Steuben County,

BATH – A public hearing is set for county agricultural districts, annual inclusion, before the Steuben County Legislature meets at 10 am Monday in the county Annex building.

The districts represent geographic boundaries for lands that are under the protection of NYS Agricultural District Law, administered by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets, and correspond to tax parcel data.

In 2023, legislation was passed allowing lands to be added to the districts annually.

The agricultural industry is a vital driver of Steuben County’s economy and defines its rural landscape and character.

With the most farming acreage of any New York State county and ranking as one of the most profitable in farm sales, Steuben looks to shape a positive and vibrant agricultural economy while protecting its existing farms and welcoming the next generation of farmers.
