Douglas County completed revising its Farmland Preservation Plan in December 2017; revision is required by the state every ten years.
The intent of Farmland Preservation is to encourage counties to plan for the future of agriculture in their county and to make farmland designated for Farmland Preservation eligible for farm incentive programs. The Farmland Preservation Plan is not regulatory.
The Farmland Preservation Plan Committee was formed by the County Board to work on revising the plan. The Committee produced a draft Farmland Preservation Map based on three factors: soil capability, existing agricultural use, and zoned agricultural use.
