ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

The Johnson County Board of Supervisors is accepting applications for its Land Access Program (LAP) at the Johnson County Historic Poor Farm, located at 4811 Melrose Ave., in Iowa City.

LAP provides land-use agreements to area farmers of varying experience and scale on public land located at the Historic Poor Farm.

The use agreements include land, irrigation water and dry storage. Ten acres are available for lease and parcels vary in size from one-eighth to three acres.

The Historic Poor Farm is developing under a 10-year master plan that includes improvements to the historic, recreation, local food production and land conservation elements on site.

Questions about LAP, the public use of land on the Historic Poor Farm, and proposed future improvements should be directed to Vanessa Fixmer-Oraiz, Historic Poor Farm project manager and director of environmental and community planning at Iowa Valley RC&D, at vanessa@ivrcd.org or 319-622-3264.

Applications and a program timeline are available at jchistoricpoorfarm.com/land-access-program.

Completed applications should be sent to Fixmer-Oraiz at vanessa@ivrcd.org by Friday, Jan. 18. Submission of an application does not guarantee rental of a farm site.
