The Otsego County Conservation Association (OCCA), in partnership with the Otsego County Soil and Water Conservation District and the Otsego County Planning Department, has assumed the lead in updating the county’s 1999 Agricultural and Farmland Protection Plan, a process that began in 2014. The updated plan examines the current status of agriculture in Otsego County and establishes a comprehensive strategy on farm and farmland protection that takes into consideration needs and trends specific to Otsego County.
All parts of the plan will be available for review as of July 1. To read each portion of the plan access the documents listed below. If you wish to comment on the plan, please click on the form below and submit your comments.
