Members & Staff

The Morris County Board of County Commissioners created the Morris County Agriculture Development Board (CADB) in 1983. The board was formed to oversee the farmland preservation program. The program enabled the County to offer farm owners the opportunity to preserve their farms, while continuing to own and maintain them. Since its creation, the CADB has had 29 volunteer members (see the History of Morris CADB Membership(PDF, 85KB)). Read the Board’s Mission Statement and current bylaws(PDF, 27KB) .
