Williamson Act

Assessment of Living Improvements – Vines & Orchards

Owners of agricultural land can agree to restrict their land to agricultural use in exchange for restricted property tax assessment under the provisions of the California Land Conservation Act of 1965. The California Land Conservation Act, commonly known as the Williamson Act, is a state agricultural land preservation program in which each local jurisdiction can elect to participate. Santa Clara County as well as some local cities currently participate in this program.
