THE QUESTION: HOW MANY ACRES ARE PERMANENTLY PRESERVED IN CARROLL COUNTY?

Carroll County has nearly 45,000 acres permanently protected from development.

Long a state and national leader in farmland preservation, the county aims to preserve 100,000 acres by 2020.

The Carroll County commissioners are considering a proposal to triple to $3 million their commitment to agricultural land preservation during the next fiscal year, which begins July 1. The money could help the county preserve almost 3,000 additional acres.
