Town of Hamilton passes Right-to-Farm Law

Town of Hamilton passes right-to-farm law

At its June town council meeting, after having held a public hearing, the Hamilton Town Council  unanimously passed a right-to-farm law. The law was drafted by the Zoning Update Committee and was originally prompted by requests from the community and as suggested in the town comprehensive plan.

The law was filed with the state Department of State June 19, 2018, and officially became part of Hamilton Town Zoning Law. A right to farm law reminds residents that farming is valued in the town and that agricultural practices are accepted as a key component of farming.

A copy of this new law is posted on the town website, and road signs will be posted around town as a reminder that Hamilton supports its farmers.
