Cropland Policy open house set for Nov. 7
Boulder County, Colo. – The Boulder County Parks and Open Space Department will host a Cropland Policy open house on Monday at the Boulder County Fairgrounds Exhibit Building.
When: Monday, Nov. 7, 5-8 p.m.
Where: Exhibit Building, Boulder County Fairgrounds, Longmont
The event will include a short presentation on the Cropland Policy process at 6 p.m.
The open house will cover the policy proposed by the Cropland Policy Advisory Group, introduce some of the existing programs for promoting local food and growth in the agricultural economy, and highlight some of the work Parks and Open Space does with its farmer partners.
The effort to develop a management policy for county-owned croplands began in 2010 with public outreach, including farm tours, an open house, a Sustainable Agriculture Forum and a Farm and Ranch Panel Discussion.
In 2011, the Board of County Commissioners convened the Cropland Policy Advisory Group to formulate policy recommendations, which are available atwww.BoulderCountyOpenSpace.org/croplandpolicy.
