DescriptionAbstract
These GIS files represent geographic boundaries for lands that are under the protection of NYS Agricultural District Law, administered by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets. The boundaries are derived from New York State Agricultural District, 1:24,000-scale, maps produced at county agencies. The district boundaries correspond to tax parcel data. District boundaries are joined into a file representing all of the Agricultural Districts within an entire county. Note that 2003 legislation allows lands to be added to districts on an annual basis. Electronic data provided here may predate those additions. Tax parcel detail and secondary rights-of-way are not included in this dataset. Rights-of-way for state and federal highways, railroads and utilities are only included when they are delineated on the original 1:24,000 scale maps. The data files are in ArcGIS shapefile format.
Purpose
A Geographic Information System (ArcGIS) file intended to represent the lands within agricultural district. Please note that boundaries may be generalizations; precise information can be obtained from the county or town tax parcel information.
Supplemental Information
An Agricultural District is defined by a list of tax parcels, including properties added during the annual open enrollment. The 1:24,000-scale maps are only updated to reflect open enrollment changes at the eight-year renewal of the district. The electronic data only reflects changes to the 1:24,000-scale maps. The Agricultural District boundaries are for use in conjunction with NYS geographical data (ex. NYS Department of Transportation (DOT) 7.5' planimetric data).
