Williamson Act contracts are being reviewed by the Mendocino County Board of Supervisors, Tuesday, February 2nd at the Administration Building on Low Gap Road. The state cancelled funding about a year ago and the county is now carefully reviewing land reserved for agriculture under the Williamson Act. At the meeting, the Board is contemplating non-renewal notices for land not in compliance with the Act. They are also addressing a moratorium on accepting new applications for Ag preserve.
An item the Board will not be discussing is the limitation of one home per land in Ag preserve. I understand this to mean that if there are 5 parcels in Ag preserve under the Williamson Act with all the development on one of the parcels and an undeveloped parcel is sold, the county will not issue a building permit for that undeveloped parcel. This is a new development. To get the property out of Ag preserve, the county would roll it out over 10 years, which means the county would not issue a building permit for that parcel for 10 years.
It is important for people owning, selling, or buying land in Ag preserve to be aware of these changes.
