Meeting Frequency:    As Needed

Meeting Location:        Conference Room A, 2nd Floor, 200 Grand River Avenue, Port Huron MI

Contact Person:            Kara Schrader, Associate Planner

Phone Number:               (810) 989-6950

Purpose:   

The St. Clair County Agricultural Preservation Board is dedicated to preserving farmland and open space throughout St. Clair County, Michigan.  It also works to promote agricultural tourism and economic development within the region.

The St. Clair County Agricultural Preservation Board was born out of the Farmland and Open Space Initiative (FOSI) group and was formally established on June 9, 2004 by the St. Clair County Board of Commissioners. They are the governing board over the County's Purchase of Development Rights (PDR) program. As part of the County’s PDR program, a conservation easement is placed on the land when development rights are purchased or donated from an actively farmed property. A conservation easement is designed specifically to protect farmland by means of compensating farmers for their willingness to accept a deed restriction on their land that limits future development for non-agricultural purposes. Participation is voluntary and landowners are compensated for lost development potential at fair market value for development rights. They still own the land and retain all other rights associated with it; however, the land must continue to be used for agricultural purposes, or remain in a natural state permanently, regardless of transfer or sale of the property.

Responsibilities:

The St. Clair County Agricultural Preservation Board is completely funded by donations. Previously, when there was more funding available and the board was more active, they also worked to educate local officials on farmland and open space preservation and to promote agribusiness and economic development. They have worked with landowners interested in preserving farmland, educated people about the conservation easement donation process, and undertaken other activities to promote the agricultural economy in St. Clair County. The purpose of agricultural preservation is to preserve valuable farmland that would otherwise be developed. Once land is lost to development, it no longer retains the valuable farming qualities that once existed. The public meetings are held on an as needed basis.

Contact Person:            Geoffrey Donaldson, Authority Director

Phone Number:               (810) 989-6900

Purpose:    Michigan has developed several incentives for redevelopment, including cost-effective cleanup options, causation-based liability, liability protection for new owners, and grants and loans available to local units of government. Innovative use of available federal, state, and local resources can be incorporated into redevelopment incentives to support expansion and to encourage new businesses to locate in Michigan.

In 2004, the St. Clair County Board of Commissioners established the St. Clair County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority (SCCBRA) to assist in the revitalization of contaminated properties throughout the county. The SCCBRA is managed by the St. Clair County Metropolitan Planning Commission. In 2017, the SCCBRA—along with the St. Clair County Land Bank Authority, the City of Port Huron, the City of Marysville and Port Huron Township—was awarded its second EPA Brownfield Coalition Assessment Grant; its first grant was awarded in 2010. This grant can be used to assess the environmental conditions on sites suspected of being impacted by petroleum products or hazardous substances.

The SCCBRA supports projects throughout St. Clair County that require financial assistance with assessing potential environmental roadblocks or concerns.

Responsibilities:

  • Liability protection (for pre-existing environmental contamination)
  • Opportunities for reimbursement of environmental expenditures
  • Opportunities for low-cost loans
  • Reimbursement of eligible redevelopment activities, including demolition and asbestos/lead abatement costs

 

Beyond the use of Federal and State grants, Brownfield project funding is also made possible through the use of incremental taxes generated by redevelopment projects approved in a Brownfield Plan.
