Ag district program available to local landowners

July 25, 2019by ncdea

KENTUCKY, Pulaski County CD – Annexation may be dead issue but landowners may be interested in a program administered by the Kentucky Division of Conservation aimed at protecting the commonwealth’s best farmland.

“I think it would be fair to say we’ve not had any more interest in the area that was looking to be annexed…than there has anywhere else in Pulaski County,” Pulaski County Conservation District board chairman Rodney Dick noted. “I think that definitely there is renewed interest all over the county.”

“The [state] always wants us to making people aware of all the programs they’ve got to offer,” Program Coordinator John Burnett said, “but we’ve been getting a few people call in with questions about it. We thought it’d be good to put something out there and just inform everybody that it is available and how it works.”

“It sets the land up to stay agricultural,” Burnett explained when asked about the program’s benefits. “The tax rates would be assessed at agricultural value and it cannot be annexed into the city limits because it’s agricultural land.”
