Lehigh County Funded Farmland Preservation $2 million for 2017 – Your Help Made it Happen!
Northampton County: $500,000 for Farmland Preservation Budget Item!
We did it! It’s 2017 and we are sending you a big thank you for your help with our highly successful farmland preservation campaign.
We had an important year in the Lehigh Valley for farmland preservation. You found your voice and reached out to your county executives and council members in support of farmland preservation. And, it made a difference!
Because you support farmland preservation and spoke up about it…both counties included increased funding for their farmland preservation offices in their 2017 budgets!
Please reach out today and tell them thank you! It’s easy! Here is the physical address for sending letters, the email addresses for sending emails and the phone numbers you can call to register your appreciation. It’s important that you reach out to both the council and the executive because they are two separate branches of government.
Executive: firstname.lastname@example.org (I’m told email is the preferable method of communication)
Physical letters may be mailed to: Lehigh County Government Center, 17 S 7th St, Allentown, PA 18101
Phone: 610-782 3050 Commissioners, 610-782-3001 Executive
Northampton County Council: email@example.com
Northampton County Executive, John Brown: firstname.lastname@example.org
Physical letters may be mailed to: Northampton County Council and Executive, Northampton County Courthouse, 669 Washington Street, Easton, PA 18042-7475

Through your efforts, we are leaving a legacy of farms as businesses, open vistas and local food.
