The county commissioners appoint the nine-member Agricultural Land Preservation Board, which consists of farmers, elected officials, and local citizens. They serve for a three-year term.
About the Board
The nine-member Bucks County Agricultural Land Preservation Board administers the Bucks County Agricultural Land Preservation Program. The Bucks County Agricultural Land Preservation Program was developed in 1989 and Bucks County was the fourth of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties to develop and adopt its own farmland preservation program. This program uses funds from the state, county, and local governments to purchase agricultural conservation easements from owners of productive farmland in Bucks County. The easements ensure that the farms remain preserved in agricultural uses for perpetuity.
