Please see the attached RFP for a full description:
This property is perpetually subject to the Town’s purchase of the Development Rights Easement. This Easement restricts the use of property to “Agricultural Production” as deﬁned in Section 25-30 of Chapter 25 of the Southold Town Code. It further prevents subdivision of the property but may allow
the property to be divided pursuant to applicable provisions of law and upon the approval of the Town Planning Board.
The Enhanced Easement with additional restrictions, herein referred to as Aﬃrmative & Aﬀordable Farming Covenants and Resale Restrictions, has limited the value of this protected farmland to its “true agricultural value.” If this farmland is sold in the future, it must be sold to a Qualiﬁed Farmer as per the attached Application. In addition, an NRCS Conservation Plan must be reviewed and approved by the Trust every 10 years.
