Program would pay farmers not to sell land to developers

Published Apr. 13, 2009 - The Florida Times-Union.
The family’s 400 acres in western St. Johns County is a top pick for a long-delayed state program to protect farms in high-growth areas by paying the farmers to surrender their development rights.

Gov. Charlie Crist and the state Cabinet could vote this month on a package of land preservation deals that would let state forestry officials begin negotiating for those rights.
