INSTRUCTIONS
The following supplement is designed to assist in filling out the application for establishing
your property as a Forestland Preservation Area:
1. Names of Petitioners: The application(s) must be signed by all fee simple owners of
the parcel(s) being placed in a Forestland Preservation Area. If there is more than one
property proposed to be in an Area where:
a) parcels are not contiguous, and/or
b) parcels are in differing forms of title,
Then each parcel must have a separate application.
All applications to create one Area should be returned to the Foundation together.
2. Mailing Address: The address that you want used for correspondence pertaining to this
application.
3. Adjoining Roads: Because some people have a post office box number for a mailing
address, it is necessary for the Foundation to know the exact road number(s) on which
the parcel is located. Please list your main road (i.e., RT. 18) and any roads that adjoin
your property.
4. # of Dwelling and Seasonal Dwelling Units: This is the number of houses on the
parcel(s) which can be occupied. Please specify the names of the occupants and their
relationship to the owners listed on the application. If any of the Dwelling Units are for
seasonal use only, please specify.
5. County Tax Parcel Number(s): If you are unsure of your parcel number, please attach
a copy of your most recent tax bill.
6. Zoning designation: In order to qualify for a Forestland Preservation Area, your land
must be zoned for agricultural purposes (i.e., SR, S, SE, AC, AR, or AR-1). If you are
not sure about your zoning designation, contact your County Planning Office. Kent:
744-2471, New Castle: 395-5400, Sussex: 855-7878.
7. Type of Land Use: The number of acres that is in each land use listed on the
application. Your farmland assessment application may serve as a good reference for
this information.
PLEASE RETAIN A COPY OF THE AREA APPLICATION FORM FOR YOUR
RECORDS AND RETURN THE ORIGINAL FORMS OF EACH OF THESE TO
THE FOUNDATION.
