Farmland Protection

The county’s zoning code addresses farmland protection through farm-friendly zoning provisions (Article II, §2B). The code exempts lands used solely for farming or forestry from regulations imposed as to zoning permits; certificates of use; or height, yard, or location requirements for agricultural buildings. A 100-foot setback from streets and floodplain regulations still apply.
