Description

Seminole Soil and Water Conservation District Long-Range Program for 1975. The organization began in 1948 with a goal to assist in agricultural interests. Over the years, the Seminole Soil and Water Conservation District began to also concentrate on the development and management of recreational enterprises. Their interests also entailed inventory and evaluations for land uses and solving issues concerning soil and water resources. In the 1975 Long-Range Program, J.A. Hopkins states that the purpose of the Long-Range Program is to identify present and future needs and opportunities for the conservation and development of natural resources within Seminole County, Florida. The Long-Range Program serves as a practical guide for the planning and accomplishments of work by the District, its cooperators, and all agencies whose assistance is enlisted. The 31 page program outlines what needs to be done, how the work should be carried out, and when the objectives and goals within are expected to be accomplished. The program is a framework for assistance to communities, watersheds, regions, and governmental units in planning and carrying out a wide variety of resource developments during 1975. The program discusses conservation, and the development of land. The program goes on to discuss the recent shift from agricultural use of land to other uses. Population growth is described in detail due to the challenges agricultural producers face as a result of population increase and urbanization.
