Ulster County agricultural district applications to be accepted in March
KINGSTON, N.Y. — The Ulster County Legislature will accept requests from March 1 to 30 from landowners wanting to place agricultural lands within a state-certified agricultural district.
Landowners seeking inclusion must submit a completed worksheet with tax map identification numbers, a copy of the relevant portion to the tax map and a description of the land to Virginia Craft, Ulster County Planning Department, 244 Fair St., P.O. Box 1800, Kingston, N.Y. 12402-1800, within the 30-day period.
The worksheet and a brochure explaining agricultural districts are available at www.co.ulster.ny.us/planning.
Lands within agricultural districts are protected from some local regulation of farm practices, the acquisition of public entities through the use of eminent domain and the advance of public funds to construct facilities that encourage non-farm development.
