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.

The links below leads to a table that shows the amount of Important Farmland (as defined in the settlement agreement) acquired, including any other unusable remainder acreage, non-economic remainder acreage or unusable remnant acreage totaling 20 acres or less (collectively, Remnant Acreage), and additionally acreage within a 25 foot wide buffer area.
