Jackson County Rural Living Handbook

Rural Living Handbook Cover
Rural Living Handbook

The Rural Living Handbook is intended to introduce current and prospective rural land owners to various available resources.  Often, newcomers accustomed to services normally provided by urban governments are shocked by the hard work required to manage rural property. This can lie in stark contrast to idyllic images of country living.

The Handbook contains a list of agencies and organizations that can assist in clarifying regulations, policies, rights, and planning decisions as people transition to living in rural Jackson County. It provides answers to general questions on land use planning, gardening, livestock management, and wildlife concerns. The Resource Directory is helpful in directing people to assistance with the natural resource management of their property.

The rural living handbook was first published in December, 2005. Developed by the Jackson Soil and Water Conservation District with funding through a Title III Grant from Jackson County and a private sponsor, it was a collaboration of county organizations and individuals and was created to answer the recurring questions posed by people interested in living a more rural lifestyle.

The latest edition was printed in December 2009.  Contact us for your copy.
