Anyone interested in leasing “tillable ” farmland can check in with the city of Belleville.
Belleville has a 650-acre section, east of its northeast industrial park, that it wants to rent out.
It is part of the land recently expropriated for development.
The city is preparing to provide services to the section adjoining College Street East, but not yet to the land further out.
City clerk Matt MacDonald says the farmland lease will be available from May of next year until December of 2018.
The request for proposals closes August 21st.
