  • 1. Working Lands Program February 2011 Brian C. Loeffelholz WI – Dept. of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection GIS and Mapping
  • 2. Farmland Preservation Program - Maps - Part of Statutes beginning 1970’s - Hard copy only - Few standards - Inconsistent 1982 – Pierce Co. Plan 1982 – Bayfield Co. Plan
  • 3. Program Participation &amp; Expirations <ul><li>~4000 Agreement on 20,000 ¼, ¼ ‘s </li></ul><ul><li>~400+ Jurisdiction’s with zoning </li></ul><ul><li>72 County Plans </li></ul><ul><li>1 million acres of AEA’s </li></ul><ul><li>PACE Applications </li></ul>All in Next 5 years *Partnership*
  • 4. What is Working Lands? PACE Farmland Preservation Zoning Farmland Preservation Plans Conservation Compliance Tax Credits Ch. 91 Wis Stats. effective on July 1, 2009 Purpose: Preserve Farmland &amp; Provide Tax Credits AEAs Agreements
  • 5. The Statutes, Maps and GIS <ul><li>General </li></ul><ul><li>- 91.02(1) Dept shall promulgate rules that set forth technical specs for farmland preservation zoning maps </li></ul><ul><li>91.03 Dept. shall cooperate in sharing and standardizing relevant information, mapping significant ag. resources, and planning and evaluating the impacts of state actions on agriculture. </li></ul><ul><li>91.04 The dept shall report to the board bi annually the following: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>(1) Farmland availability, uses, and trends in WI including farmland conversion by state &amp; county </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(2) Participation by political subdivisions and landowners </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(3) Location of counties with certified Farmland Preservation Plans </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(4) Location of political subdivisions with certified Farmland Preservation Zoning </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(5) Nature and location of AEA’s </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(6) Location of farms covered by farmland preservation agreements </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Plans </li></ul><ul><li>91.10 (1) Farmland preservation plan that does the following: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>(d) Clearly identifies areas that the county plans to preserve for ag uses., which may include open space, but may not include any area that is planned non-ag within 15 yrs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(e) Includes maps that clearly delineate areas planned for Farmland preservation so that the reader can easily determine whether a parcel is within an identified area. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>91.10 (2) farmland preservation plan is consistent with the comprehensive plan. </li></ul><ul><li>91.16(3)(b)(1) The dept may review the farmland preservation plan for compliance. </li></ul>
  • 6. The Statutes, Maps and GIS cont… <ul><li>Zoning </li></ul><ul><li>91.38(1) A farmland preservation zoning ordinance does not qualify unless it: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>(c) clearly designates farmland preservation zoning districts </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(d) includes maps that clearly delineate each farmland preservation zoning districts, so that the reader can easily determine whether a parcel is within a farmland preservation zoning district, that are correlated to the text, and that comply with technical specifications that the dept. establishes by rule. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(f) farmland preservation zoning ordinance is substantially consistent with a certified farmland preservation plan. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(g) land is not included in a farmland preservation zoning district unless the land is included in a farmland preservation area identified in the county certified farmland preservation plan. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(h)(2) overlay districts must be shown on a map in a way that allows a reader to easily identify the underlying farmland preservation zoning district and it boundaries. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>91.36(b)(1) Dept. may review the farmland preservation zoning ordinance for compliance </li></ul><ul><li>Ag. Enterprise Areas </li></ul><ul><li>91.84 (1)(a) Designation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1. The dept. may by rule designate AEAs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>3. The parcels in the area are contiguous. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>4. The area is located entirely in a farmland preservation plan area </li></ul></ul><ul><li>91.84 (4) In a rule designating an AEA, the dept. shall include a map that clearly shows the boundaries of the proposed AEA so that the reader can easily determine whether a parcel of land is located within the AEA. </li></ul><ul><li>91.86 (3)(a)3. A petition needs to contain a map that clearly shows the boundaries of the proposed AEA so that the reader can easily determine whether parcel of land is located within the AEA. </li></ul>
  • 7. Map and GIS Guidelines <ul><li>Map should: </li></ul><ul><li>Titled “Farmland Preservation Plan Map for (Jurisdiction).” </li></ul><ul><li>Farmland preservation areas clearly delineated. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Overlays” do not obscure farmland preservation area. </li></ul><ul><li>Follows current parcel boundaries </li></ul><ul><li>Show political &amp; parcel boundaries, sections, roads &amp; water. </li></ul><ul><li>Legend has symbols for all data represented on the map. </li></ul><ul><li>Farmland preservation area titles correspond to text. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>- ALL areas/districts listed in text even if not utilized. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Identify map scale, north arrow, map date &amp; producer. </li></ul><ul><li>Map scale &lt;= 1” = 2,000’. (1:24,000). Series OK. </li></ul><ul><li>Submitted in .pdf or equivalent file format </li></ul>Applications Materials: Text, Maps (Hard &amp; Elec.) &amp; GIS Data
  • 8. Map and GIS Guidelines cont… <ul><li>GIS Data: </li></ul><ul><li>Data used to create a farmland preservation map </li></ul><ul><li>WTM83, NAD83(1991), Meters. </li></ul><ul><li>Attribute field with farmland preservation type </li></ul><ul><li>Farmland preservation types consistent with text </li></ul><ul><li>Metadata with </li></ul><ul><ul><li>producer, contact, and attribute definitions. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ purpose” section: map info provided in support of the request for certification of the farmland preservation plan, ordinance or AEA. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Submitted in vector shapefile, layerfile, geodatabase or equivalent file format. </li></ul>“ Consistent” = Exactly the Same “ Substantially Consistent” &gt; 80%
