The Agriculture Resilience Plan: Update and Request for Feedback
The Agriculture Resilience Plan will help farmers in Snohomish County plan for future changes such as population growth and climate change. The plan will help us build a resilient agricultural community into the future through a combination of information gathering and sharing, creation of online planning tools, project scoping and design, project implementation, and farmland protection.
The goals of the plan are to:
- Provide information and project funding for farmers to manage for future risk on their farms
- Develop landscape-scale projects to improve agricultural resilience
- Protect agricultural lands from subdivision or development
In addition to informing you about what we are up to, we would like your group’s feedback on the direction we are taking. Is this the information that will be useful to you? What types of changes and risks are you most concerned about?
