Get your Farmland added to an Agricultural District

Why would you get your farmland added to an "Ag District"?

The Agricultural Districts Law was created in 1971 to encourage the continued use of farmland for agricultural production. The Program is based on a combination of landowner incentives and protections, all of which are designed to forestall the conversion of farmland to non-agricultural uses. Benefits include protections against overly restrictive local laws, government funded acquisition or construction projects, and private nuisance suits involving agricultural practices.

Another benefit offered to landowners who qualify is preferential real property tax treatment (agricultural assessment and special benefit assessment).

The farm developers must come out and negotiate with the landowners and try to solve this problem in peaceful manner instead of going to court . According to bestessays reviews reviews this is very useful project and very much needed one to the people. So, it is better to have complete discussion with land owners and give them the compensation of the damage.
