Farms, Forests & Habitat
In 2013, Futurewise will be working on major policy strategies for preserving farmland in Whatcom, Pierce, Snohomish and Eastern Washington Counties. Our Farms, Forests & Habitat Program's focus this year in many of these communities is on a new innovative sustainable lands strategy for farmlands and salmon habitat, developing effective transfer of development rights, and holding the line of urban sprawl onto our critical farmlands. We will also push to develop solutions at the state level on long-standing and intractable resource issues - such as the unnecessary expansion of urban growth areas.
