Land Preservation

Washington County’s efforts to preserve valuable farmland began in April 1978 with the Maryland Agricultural Land Preservation Program (MALPP). Since that time, the land preservation effort has expanded to a total of 8 programs.  To date, more than 25,000 acres have been permanently protected, with another 18,000 acres under temporary protection as 10 year Agricultural Districts.  The County’s goal is to permanently preserve 50,000 acres of agricultural land and open space through its various easement programs.
