Green Valley Agricultural Conservancy (2008-2009)

Client: Solano County Planning Department

Partners: Hart Howerton  (lead), Economic Planning Systems

Date of project:

SAGE provided consultation services on the agricultural component of the Specific Plan for Middle Green Valley, a 2,000-acre plan area in Solano County, that balances limited development with agricultural conservation.

The Green Valley Agricultural Conservancy, for which SAGE developed a business plan, celebrates and perpetuates the tradition of cherished working landscapes that have characterized this part of Solano County for over 150 years. The Conservancy is envisioned as both an agricultural operation, growing for the local community and regional foodshed, and as a land steward, responsible for managing conservation and agricultural easements. The 450-acre Green Valley Farm is being developed as a community amenity and defining element for the new cluster development project.
