REQUIRED EXPLANATION OF REQUEST
  The Ohio Department of Agriculture respectfully requests Controlling Board approval to release capital appropriation in the amount of $1,215,713.00 from Fund 7057, ALI C70009 (Agricultural Easement) and in the amount of $500,000 Fund GRF, ALI 700409 (Farmland Preservation) in FY22, for an agency released competitive opportunity in the amount of $1,715,713 to purchase agricultural easements through the following seven local sponsors: Cardinal Land Conservancy, Delaware County Commissioners, Fairfield County Commissioners, Geauga Board of County Commissioners, Miami Soil & Water Conservation District, Philander Chase Conservancy and Richland Soil & Water Conservation District.  
  The total purchase will be for 9 properties in 9 counties totaling 1,076.301 acres in Clinton (1), Delaware (2), Fairfield (2), Geauga (1), Miami (1), Knox (1) and Richland (1) Counties.

This request for an Agency Released Competitive Opportunity includes $1,215,713.00 in Clean Ohio capital funding and $500,000 in GRF that was earmarked in HB 110 specifically for the purchase of agricultural easements.

For this purpose and pursuant to OAC 901-2-06 (E), Agriculture will disburse payments to the seven local sponsors (Cardinal Land Conservancy, Delaware County Commissioners, Fairfield County Commissioners, Geauga Board of County Commissioners, Miami Soil & Water Conservation District, Philander Chase Conservancy and Richland Soil & Water Conservation District). These local sponsors will then be responsible for disbursing payment to the landowners on behalf of the Ohio Department of Agriculture, in exchange for the landowners executing a Deed of Agricultural Easement.

It is important to note that the local sponsors will not be the final recipient of the $1,715,713 in funding. Rather, through a "Cooperative Agreement" with the Department, the sponsors will be contractually bound to disburse the funds to the landowners once the Deed of Agricultural Easement has been executed and recorded. The closing will occur within 10 business days of receipt of the funds from the state. As part of the closing process, the local sponsors will be responsible for recording the Department's executed deeds of agricultural easement and providing the Department the owner's policy of title insurance for each easement.

A "Deed of Agricultural Easement" is a legal agreement between the landowner, ODA, and the local community (i.e., a board of county commissioners, board of township trustees, soil and water conservation district, land trust, or municipal corporation). The legal agreement is recorded in the county recorder's office. The agreement restricts non-agricultural uses on farmland and the land remains on the tax rolls under private ownership and management. Program participation in the Agricultural Easement Purchase Program (AEPP) is voluntary. The landowner can undertake any agricultural activity permitted under Ohio law and they can sell their farm or pass it along as a gift to others. The restriction prohibiting non-farm development of the land travels with the title. Thus, any new owners of the land will also be prohibited from developing the land for non-farm uses.

Pursuant to OAC 901-2-06 (C), the title costs incurred in the agricultural easement purchase process will be deducted from the payment to the landowner at closing. As such, the landowner will incur costs for the title examination and title insurance policy, the fees for recording the documents, and a fee for escrow services. These costs which are deducted from the final payment are reflected in settlement statements and are approved by the department and the landowner prior to closing.

These landowners are among 54 landowners selected on average over the last six funding rounds of the Clean Ohio Agricultural Easement Purchase Program (AEPP). The AEPP is administered by the Ohio Department of Agriculture - Office of Farmland Preservation and is part of the Clean Ohio Fund that was renewed by Ohio voters in November 2008. Over the last six AEPP funding rounds, an average of 124 farms applied to the program and an average of 54 farms statewide were selected to receive funding through the sale of an agricultural easement to the Ohio Department of Agriculture.
 
  Agriculture recently submitted the following: AGR0100509, AGR0100513, AGR0100514, AGR0100516, AGR0100523, AGR0100526, AGR0100527, AGR0100532, AGR0100533 AGR0100540, AGR0100552 and AGR0100554.
