Purchase of Development Rights Program

PDR Program Overview

Scott County’s Purchase of Development Rights (PDR) Program is the second Agricultural Conservation Easement program by a local government in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  Currently there are five (5) farms totaling 611 acres permanently protected by conservation easements.

Goals & Objectives

Our goal is to manage a farmland preservation program by purchasing conservation easements in the Rural Service Area of Scott County.  The target goal is to preserve 20% of the agriculturally-zoned land within Scott County, with an annual goal to preserve 2,000 acres per year.
