Title: 21 - Coastal Zoning

Chapter: 13 - TPZ Timberland Preserve Zone District

Section: 10 - Intent

The timber preserve zone, or TPZ, is intended to provide for timberland zoning and restrictions for a minimum ten-year period as a "timberland preserve." Such zoning allows land to be valued for property taxation, in general, on the basis of its use for growing and harvesting timber only. Beginning in fiscal year 1977-78, timber would be exempt from ad valorem taxation however, a yield tax would be imposed at such time the timber is harvested. Changes of district from timberland preserve zone district to another classification are to be made only where such uses are in accord with the General Plan or adopted specific plan.

     For the purposes of Section 21.52.020(A)(4), the timberland preserve zone district uses listed under 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 regulations set forth in this chapter shall apply in all timberland preserve zone districts, subject to the provisions of Chapters 21.02 through 21.60.
