OPT-IN General Information

The County is currently in the process of updating the Zoning Ordinance to be consistent with the adopted 2004 General Plan. As part of this process, the County is updating the zoning maps, which may require a zone change on certain lots to either bring them into conformity with their General Plan land use designation or as replacement for an obsolete zone. Zone changes as a result of this process will have no effect on your current property tax rate.   On some lots meeting certain criteria, the County is providing an agricultural zone option in order to allow certain agricultural uses by right as well as “right to farm” protections under the Zoning Ordinance.
