Are you interested in keeping new agricultural regulations out of Douglas County? The Voluntary Stewardship Program reduces the regulatory burden on the Douglas County agricultural community by protecting critical areas through voluntary conservation activities. VSP work group members are responsible for determining the direction of the program and helping it succeed. Participating on the work group will help ensure the needs and interests of your agricultural community are met and that additional regulations are not imposed in Douglas County.
VSP work group meetings are open to the public, and interested parties are encouraged to attend a meeting or two prior to committing to be a member. If interested, or for more information, please contact District Manager at 509-888-6373 or visit the VSP Webpage.
