For the Town of Malta, New York, The LA Group completed a plan to ensure the long-term viability of agriculture in the community. The plan will help Malta implement a number of pro-agriculture, pro-rural, and pro-downtown policies.
Funded through the Municipal Agricultural and Farmland Protection Planning Grant from the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets, the plan includes an inventory and analysis of existing land use, active agricultural land, and areas experiencing residential development pressures.
The firm also facilitated multiple public meetings and workshops to encourage input from residents and local farmers on how agriculture is changing within the town.
