Conversion of Prime Farmland
The USDA, Rural Utilities Service has received an application for financial assistance from the Town of Hayden. As required by the National Environmental Policy Act, an Environmental Assessment has been prepared that evaluated the potential environmental effects and consequences of the proposed project.
