The Pierce County Council created the Agriculture Advisory Committee in 2017 to provide recommendations on issues that impact agriculture in Pierce County and act as a forum for those interested in enhancing and promoting the long-term success of agriculture in the County. Individuals who served on the Committee must have been residents of Pierce County or have been active agricultural producers operating in Pierce County and met other requirements based upon position. More information about the purpose of the committee is available here.
As of July 1, 2023, the Agriculture Advisory Committee has transitioned from a limited-duration, temporary advisory to the Council, to a permanent Commission, advising all Pierce County decisionmakers on matters important to commercial agriculture.
