Purpose

Davie has a committee dedicated to agriculture and the environment called the Agricultural and Environmental Advisory Committee. This committee meets quarterly. Town residents volunteer their time and efforts to serve on this committee. They work to improve the agricultural lifestyle in Davie while conserving our environment, ensuring that Davie wildlife and resources are well protected.
