Rezoning land: Land may be rezoned out of farmland preservation for another use without penalty after the local government makes the following findings at a public hearing:
- The land is better suited for a use not allowed in the farmland preservation zoning district.
- The rezoning is consistent with any applicable comprehensive plan.
- The rezoning is substantially consistent with the county certified farmland preservation plans.
- The rezoning will not substantially impair or limit current or future agricultural use of surrounding parcels of land that are zoned for or legally restricted to agricultural use.
