Farmland preservation has topped nearly 15,000 acres in Dauphin County since 1992.

The county commissioners last week announced the preservation of 167 acres in Halifax Township through a $250,560 easement purchase covered by the state and county.

During the last 21 years, the county has preserved 14,679 acres on 150 farms in 12 municipalities.

"By purchasing easements, we can preserve our green space and encourage redevelopment and 'smart growth' in urbanized areas," said Commissioner George Hartwick III.
