Rural Preference Census
In November of 2013, the county surveyed owners of properties zoned for agriculture (AG-20) and forest (FR-40) to determine preferences of these owners for a smaller minimum parcel size. Owners of AG-20 parcels larger than 10 acres and FR-40 parcels larger than 20 acres received letters asking for their preferences. The Board of County Commissioners used the results to decide if changes are needed in the county's rural lands policy. Any proposed changes would be done as part of the 2016 Comprehensive Plan update.
