Purpose of the Program

This presentation will introduce the land use planning tool known as LESA (Land Evaluation and Site Assessment). It can be used by local planners to objectively measure the suitability of land for agriculture, or conversely, for development. This can be an extremely helpful tool for those working on comprehensive planning, zoning, and rural development.
