Title: 21 - Coastal Zoning

Chapter: 08 - AE Agriculture Exclusive District

Section: 10 - IntentApplicability

Because prime agricultural land is not a readily renewable resource, this district classification is intended to provide for the protection of agricultural land and uses against encroachment by other uses which may be in conflict therewith. The provisions of this section, therefore, shall be interpreted to apply to agricultural pursuits and related uses, to the end that no other use shall be permitted, and no regulation shall be deemed or construed to interfere with any normal accessory use conducted in conjunction therewith. It is the intention of this section to prevent the subdividing of prime agricultural lands into lot sizes which might threaten the use of such lands for agriculture, and changes of zone from AE to another classification are to be made only where such uses are in accord with the General Plan or an adopted specific plan.

     For the purposes of Section 21.52.020(A)(4), the agriculture exclusive district uses listed under the principal permitted use section herein shall be considered as the principal permitted use in the California Coastal Zone. Variances and adjustments to the district\'s requirements and standards shall not be considered a principal permitted use for purposes of Section 21.52.020(A)(4).

     The following regulations shall apply in all AE districts, subject to the provisions of Chapters 21.02 through 21.60.
