Agricultural and Forestal Districts may be reviewed on a regular basis, however, an applicant may apply to have property added at any time by submitting an application to the Planning Office. Owners of properties within the current Agricultural and Forestal Districts are required to request authorization from this Committee before removing property from the district or changing the land use. The findings and recommendations of this committee are forwarded to the Planning Commission and the Board of County Supervisors for action. The standard for review for removal of land from an Agricultural and Forestal District is good and reasonable cause.
