Are you a Cyclist or Runner?

We want to hear from you!

The Newfield Planning Board is reviewing the recreation section of the Comprehensive Plan. We want to hear from cyclists and runners (trail and/or road) about how we can better support these recreational activities. The Town of Newfield has well-maintained roads threaded through beautiful rural countryside. But how many cyclists in the region know about the possible routes? Share your suggestions by joining us at the July 10th Planning Board meeting (in person or via ZOOM). You may also email your ideas to Thank you!

Do you want to protect your farm in perpetuity?

Farmland Protection Grant Accepting Pre-Applications

The Tompkins County Agriculture and Farmland Protection Board is accepting pre-applications for the NYS Farmland Protection Implementation Grant, which provides funding for purchase of development rights. Purchase of Development Rights (PDR) programs pay farmers who voluntarily commit to protecting their farmland from development through agricultural conservation easements. Funding pays the farmer the appraised difference between the “development value” of the land and the “agricultural value” of the land. Interested parties should contact Crystal Buck at Cornell Cooperative Extension Tompkins County to make an appointment as soon as possible to discuss the program and application process, receive assistance with mapping and data, and prepare a draft land plan map for your project. Find out more here. Contact Crystal via email at or by phone at 607-272-2292 x265.
