UTICA, N.Y. -- Cornell Cooperative Extension is teaming up with the Oneida County Farm Bureau. Wednesday, they unveiled a municipal guide to planning for agriculture.

The guide is meant to aid local towns with an easy to use reference for fostering agriculture in Oneida County.

Zoning boards are often tasked with questions pertaining to comprehensive plans, land use regulations, and municipal policies. This provides a uniform approach in developing plans, regulations, and policies.

The county executive expressed the importance of the farming industry.

“It's a business that we cannot afford to lose. We cannot afford to lose any more farms in this County, or in this State. It is essential to our public health and welfare and overall well-being in terms of what gets produced each and every day,” said Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente.

The ag-friendly guide will be distributed to all towns, villages, and even cities throughout Oneida County.
