FARMLAND PRESERVATION: ARC No Net Loss Resolution

The ARC endorses a policy of “No Net Loss” agricultural land policy in Resolution 2006-01. In it, the ARC proposes that “…no Agricultural Resources Land should be redesignated unless effective, equivalent mitigation — that assures no net loss in total Agricultural Resource Land — is required as a condition of any such redesignation,” and recommends the San Juan County Code be amended to include similar language.
