In a unanimous vote at last night's meeting, Greenville County Council approved a new Agricultural Preservation Zoning District — providing citizens an important and voluntary tool for preserving the county's remaining farmlands.
A citizen-led effort from the start, the Ag District was informed by farmers and residents living in the county's most rural areas — in other words, those impacted most. Hundreds of citizens signed petitions, made calls, and attended meetings urging the district's adoption. Last night, Council delivered.
Now that the Ag District has been established, interested landowners can pursue zoning their property for agricultural use. To read more about this issue and last night's meeting, see the Post & Courier's article HERE.
