ZONING

The 3,664 acres consists of 19 deeded parcels. Sixteen of them are zoned Mountain Preserve and three parcels are zoned exclusive agriculture taking advantage of the Williamson Act.

“The California Land Conservation Act of 1965--commonly referred to as the Williamson Act--enables local governments to enter into contracts with private landowners for the purpose of conserving specific parcels of land to agricultural or related open space use. In return, landowners receive property tax assessments which are much lower than normal because they are based upon farming and open space uses as opposed to full market value. Local governments receive an annual subvention of forgone property tax revenues from the state via the Open Space Subvention Act of 1971.”
