Farmland Protection Board Accepting Applications
Upshur County Farmland Protection Board is currently receiving applications for conservation easements.
Applications must be received by December 30, 2016 in order to be considered for the FY17 funding cycle.
The goals for the West Virginia Voluntary Farmland Protection Program, both on the local and state level, are to partially offset development pressures which have led to rapid loss of farmland and open space all over the nation; to encourage the permanent protection of certain parcels of farmland; to facilitate the awarding of financial compensation for those who are willing to sell development rights on their property, and to assist those who are willing to donate conservation easements.
If you would like an application mailed to you, or have any questions, please contact Amy Moloney at 304-667-4877 or e-mail us at email@example.com.
