See the new page in Community Pulse that shows how much urban development has occurred and how much farmland has been converted in each city in San Joaquin County during 1992 to 2016. There are charts that break down the data by jurisdiction and maps that show the location and extent of urban development and farmland conversion. Urban development also includes ranchettes and agricultural-support facilities.
Find out how much farmland within a farmland category has been converted to urban uses. For example, you can find out how much prime farmland (the most productive farmland) that has been converted to urban uses within a particular city.
There is also an interactive map that show urban and built-up land as of 1992, land that has developed between 1992 and 2016 and the farmland that has been converted. For converted farmland, the acreage has been broken down into the 5 farmland categories established by the Farmland Mapping and Monitoring Program of the California Department of Conservation. You can zoom in and out and turn on and off the individual layers for ease of exploration. Click on the icon on the upper left corner to see the legend. Because you can zoom in, you can find out whether your neighborhood (or house) is on land that was once farmland.
