§ 82.08.010  Purpose.
   (a)   The Agricultural Preserve (AP) Overlay established by §§ 82.01.020 (Land Use Plan and Land Use Zoning Districts) and 82.01.030 (Overlays) identifies properties within an established agricultural preserve.  The properties may be subject to a Land Conservation Contract executed between the landowner and the Board.  These agreements offer tax advantages to the landowner and include an enumerated list of the allowed uses for the commercial production of plant and animal products that have been found to be compatible with agriculture.
   (b)   Because the preservation of agricultural land uses is essential to the economic well-being of the County, the Agricultural Preserve (AP) Overlay is intended to protect vital agricultural uses by limiting allowed land uses to those that are compatible and supportive of agriculture and related uses and/or agricultural by-products.
