Agricultural Preservation Advisory Board (APAB)
The APAB promulgates the rules and regulations and has developed procedures for the formation of Agricultural Preservation Districts (APDs) and implementation of the county’s Agricultural Preservation Program. The APAB has developed rules, regulations, and procedures for the creation and operation of the County’s Purchase and Retirement Fund (PAR) for Development Rights. The APAB meets on a monthly basis to review program participant requests to ensure they are within compliance with the rules and regulations, as well as to administer the County’s PAR program. The APAB works with the Department of Planning & Zoning to review and recommend changes to the County’s Agricultural Preservation Program as needed.
APAB meetings are held on the first Monday of the month with the exception of January, July and September, which have been rescheduled to the 2nd Tuesday. Meetings start at 7:30 p.m. during Daylight Savings Time and at 7:00 p.m. before and after Daylight Savings Time.
