INSTRUCTIONS
The following supplement is designed to assist in filling out the application for a Preservation
District/Expansion.
1. Names of Petitioners: The application(s) must be filed by all fee simple owners of the County
Tax Parcel(s) being placed in a District/Expansion. If there is more than one property proposed
to be in a District/Expansion where…

b. Parcels are in differing forms of title,
…then each parcel must have a separate application.
All applications to create one District/Expansion 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., Seashore Highway) and any roads that touch your property.
4. Number of Dwelling Units: This is the number of houses on the parcel(s) which can be occupied.

a copy of your most recent tax bill.
6. Zoning designation: In order to qualify for a Preservation District/Expansion, 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.
