Farm/Forest Special Assessment Program

Exclusive Farm Use - EFU is land that has been zoned farm use by the planning department. The deferral is automatic, unless there are no farming activities, and then the special assessment is removed.

Non-Exclusive Farm Use - Non-EFU is land that has not been zoned as exclusive farm use by the planning department. It does not prevent farm use. This designation DOES require a minimum income be produced and reported on a yearly gross income questionnaire. The special assessment is by application only and will transfer with ownership as long as acceptable farm activities continue.
