At their April 18, 2016 meeting, the Portage County Farmland Preservation Ad-Hoc Steering Committee concluded their work on preparing the initial complete draft of the Portage County Farmland Preservation Plan, and made a motion to formally recommend the draft to the Portage County Planning and Zoning Committee for additional review and ultimately a public hearing before making their own formal recommendation to the full County Board for consideration.

Part of the recommendation by the Ad Hoc Committee was to have the Portage County Land and Water Conservation and Agriculture and Extension Education Committees join Planning and Zoning in a joint review and recommendation of the draft. The Plan was received by the Planning and Zoning Committee on May 24, 2016, and a joint meeting of the Committees will be scheduled in the second half of June. Please check back to this blog for details as they become available.

Below you will find links to the Plan document, as well as the draft minutes from the Ad Hoc Committee meeting.
