Agriculture-Friendly Oneida County
The 2017 Oneida County Agricultural and Farmland Protection Plan outlined an initiative to provide resources for municipalities to have the ability to create a balance between the needs of the community, local interests, and the ever-changing agriculture industry. Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) Oneida County was awarded a grant from Oneida County to support local governments preparing municipal Agriculture and Farmland Protection Plans. CCE Oneida County was charged with reaching out and assisting those municipalities by defining the role of agriculture within comprehensive plans, land use regulations, and policy development.
