The Town of Ancram is looking for volunteers to work with the Comp Plan Committee on the Town’s Farmland Protection Plan (FPP) Project Team.
The FPP Project Team will focus on strategies, tactics and programs for promoting agriculture and protecting farmland and will meet once a month.
The role of the Farmland Protection Plan Project Team will be to work with the Comp Plan Committee to provide information and monitor the consultants working on the FPP Project. We expect to get a draft “project plan” proposal and budget from our consultants by early October. This draft Plan will be circulated to the Project Team for review and revision. First meeting of the FPP Project Team will probably be late in October.
You can get a more detailed understanding of the Farmland Protection Plan project by looking at the Farmland Protection Plan Grant Application on the town web site (http://www.townofancram.org). Go to the Comp Plan section of the web site, scroll down to Documents, go to Grants and look at the first document that section.
