The town of Easton’s emphasis on supporting agriculture and mitigating the impacts of new development on farms is evident throughout this subdivision law. Minor subdivisions undergo a two-step process, while major subdivisions have a three-step process. For projects that require environmental impact statements, the town requires an element describing the impact on agriculture when the proposed action is located within or contiguous to an agricultural district.
