FARMLAND PRESERVATION PROGRAM PLAN

Through various public forums and public opinion surveys, Hunterdon County residents have clearly stated their desire to preserve the County's rural character, its farmland and open space. County residents have overwhelmingly approved farmland preservation bond issues since the first referendum in 1980 and the participation of land owners in the farmland preservation program has increased since its inception in 1985. The interest of residents and landowners in preserving farmland, however, is countered by development pressure in the County and the concurrent decline of full time farmers. This has made farmland preservation a challenging task.

WOODLAND CONSERVATION PLAN

Woodland conservation means the retention of priority woodland areas for the benefit of the community. Priority woodlands are those tree stands identified through a planning process to have special qualities warranting preservation.

Each community must go through a planning process to determine what resources they would like to see protected.
