THIRTY DAY OPEN PERIOD FOR ALBANY COUNTY
AGRICULTURE DISTRICTS #1, #2 & #3


As a result of the addition of Section 303-b to the Agriculture and Markets law,
landowners have the opportunity to apply to have their land added to one of the three
agricultural districts in the county each year.


The Albany County Legislature designated an annual 30-day open period to begin each year starting on February 1st to run for a period of 30 days.


If you own land or rent your land for the purpose of producing an agricultural commodity,
you should think about placing your land in an Agricultural District during this 30-day period.

Agricultural District and to receive a copy of the application form, contact:
