The ALS Strategies can be used by project proponents when their proposed projects will affect agricultural land. Some of the ALS Strategies can be used to work with local government and landowners to avoid or minimize impacts on agriculture and to consider local and regional plans. Some of the ALS Strategies provide options to consider for environmental mitigation required under the California Environmental Policy Act (CEQA). Other ALS Strategies could assist in maintaining the agricultural sustainability of the area where the project is located. Finally, some of the ALS Strategies discuss opportunities to keep local landowners and farmers on the land by participating in project activities, when a project involves conversion from agriculture to other open space uses.
