Agricultural Element

The Agricultural Element describes the status and trends of local agriculture and expresses community goals with regard to conserving productive agricultural lands within the County and minimizing or avoiding conflicts with urban and other land uses. The Agricultural Element is an optional Element of the Imperial County General Plan, as permitted by Section 65303 of the California Government Code. This Element is intended to be a comprehensive, internally consistent, and long-term expression of community goals with regard to agriculture, and serves as the foundation for development decisions by the County Board of Supervisors.
