The three greatest factors in the approval of the Lansing Agriculture and Farmland Protection Plan are:
- The plan was never critically examined or allowed to be publicly questioned.
- Lansing’s rural families were unrepresented by any state, local or county agency or government representative, and prevented from having any meaningful participation in the plan themselves.
- The lives and welfare of rural families living in the affected area of Lansing are of no importance whatsoever to the people who created and support this plan.
Today’s rural residents have no place in Tompkins County’s future.
This statement is based on more than two years of research and review, questions and public meetings concerning the most recent Agriculture and Comprehensive Plans of Lansing and Tompkins County, NY.
