Chapter: 14 - CT Coastal Timber Zone District

Section: 40 - Minimum lot size

     1.  The owners of the resulting parcels submit or the present owner makes sufficient provisions for a joint timber management plan prepared or approved as to content by a registered professional forester.

 2.  Such owners enter into a binding contract with the county of Del Norte to manage and harvest timber on the timberland jointly and are bound by the provisions of the management plan for a minimum period of ten years.

   B. Parcels less than twenty acres in size may be created when the one unit/twenty acres density is not exceeded but where the parcels shall not be smaller than that allowed utilizing the rural land division criteria as set forth in the land use categories section of the Local Coastal Plan and in Title 16 of the Del Norte County Code. Such a project shall be subject to conditions (A)(1) and (2) of this section and to the D district combining zone (Chapter 21.36) to ensure that there is no further division than that permitted by the Local Coastal Plan density.
