STEWIACKE - The future of existing agricultural lands in Nova Scotia is the topic being investigated during a public meeting in Stewiacke tonight.
The public meeting is one of a series of five meetings throughout the province. Tonight's gathering is at the Stewiacke fire hall from 7 to 9 p.m. and should be of interest to residents from Truro through the Stewiacke corridor and surrounding areas. A brief presentation from the agricultural land review committee chair, Richard Williams, will open the public discussion.
Public input will revolve around the preservation of provincial agriculture land, how much land is needed to sustain the population of Nova Scotia, whether land uses that are incompatible with agriculture, such as private homes, hospitals and day cares, should be restricted from agricultural areas and what role society needs to play in determining the future of agricultural lands.
There is an estimated 181,915 hectares of active farmland in Nova Scotia, according to a 2006 census.
