Partnership for Manageable Growth

Planning and Development
Eoin Wrafter, Commissioner

 

The Partnership for Manageable Growth helps protect important agricultural and open space resources. The program provides a locally funded match for land preservation purchase (up to 50% of the total project cost). Since its inception, the program has helped protect almost 4,000 acres of farmland and open space in Dutchess County.
