About the Board

The Agricultural Advisory Board is an advisory body to the council, Planning Commission, Hearing Examiner, and county staff. The board’s continuing mandate is to support and reinforce the county’s agricultural preservation plan. The board is made up of 11 members who meet very specific criteria, who serve four-year terms and may not serve more than three consecutive terms. Members are appointed by the council on recommendation of the county executive. Email for more information.
