The Person County Board of Commissioners adopted the Person County Farmland Preservation Plan (FPP) on June 6, 2016. The Person SWCD and staff played an instrumental part in the development of this plan while working closely with other county departments. By adopting this plan, Person County government has stated that Agriculture is important to the Person County economy. This plan reflects the focus of the economic impact of agriculture in Person County and suggests ways to continue to grow the agricultural economy in the county. The District and staff will continue to work with the Person County Agriculture Advisory Board on implementing the action items included in the FPP.
