Connecticut PACE Enabling Statutes
This statute authorizes Connecticut's state-level Farmland Protection Program, also known as its PACE program. Many states have Purchase of Agricultural Conservation Easement (PACE) programs that provide funding to purchase development rights on private agricultural land to permanently protect it from non-farm development, keeping more land available for agriculture. These statutes authorize the PACE program in Connecticut.
