Was agricultural land a consideration in the evaluation?

Yes. Avoidance of Prime Agricultural Areas (lands where Specialty Crop Areas and Class 1, 2, and 3 soils dominate) was a consideration in Screen 1. Prime Agricultural Lands are designated in local and County Official Plans. Of the 502 candidate sites evaluated, 71 were excluded due to their location within Prime Agricultural Areas or high quality soils.
