Important Farmland Status Report
In April 2013, the California High-Speed Rail Authority (Authority) entered into a settlement agreement with County of Madera, Merced County Farm Bureau, Preserve Our Heritage, Chowchilla Water District, and Fagundes Parties (Petitioners). The agreement requires the Authority to provide on its website a report identifying the parcels of Important Farmland that are considered permanently converted, or potentially converted to non-agricultural use, as specified in more detail in the settlement agreement.
