Build In, Not Out

The presentations in this session from American Farmland Trust's Farmland, Food and Livable Communities Conference provide information about farmland protection programs at the state, regional and county levels that use planning and zoning to reduce farmland conversion and promote smart growth. Presenters will highlight approaches used within the context of comprehensive growth management as well as those that can be effective outside the policy framework. Learn how planning and zoning can be used to support and enhance the effectiveness of permanent farmland protection programs including purchase of agricultural conservaiton easement or transfer of development rights programs.

Session presenters: Daniel O’Connell, San Joaquin Valley Program Manager, American Farmland Trust (moderator); Katherine Daniels, Farm and Forest Lands Specialist, Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development; Jim Johnson, Land Use and Water Planning Coordinator, Oregon Department of Agriculture; Brian Standing, Senior Planner, Dane County Planning and Development, Wisconsin; Knox van Nagell, Executive Director, Fayette Alliance, Kentucky.
