Agriculture Department Helps Identify Development Sites
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — The South Dakota Agriculture Department has started a program to help counties identify the best locations for agricultural development projects.
The department will work local governments and development officials on a site analysis program that will look at information on local zoning ordinances, permitting requirements and the availability of service infrastructure.
State Agriculture Secretary Lucas Lentsch says the program will help counties identify the right development opportunities in the most effective locations.
The program will analyze locations that could host development projects such as manufacturing, commodity processing and livestock-related enterprises.
