Farmland Preservation Planning
Counties are revising their farmland preservation plans to meet new requirements designed to better protect farmland. Once certified by DATCP, these plans ensure access to program benefits, including landowner eligibility for farmland preservation tax credits.
Once adopted, the Farmland Preservation Plan becomes an element of County’s Comprehensive Plan. Any land designated for farmland preservation shall not be planned for anything except agricultural or forestry uses. This document is intended to fulfill the statutory requirements for both the Farmland Preservation Plan (Chapter 91, Subchapter II, WI Statutes) and the Agricultural Element of the Comprehensive Plan (s66.1001(2), WI Statutes).
