(a) The existence of topographic conditions i.e. steep slopes, changes in grade, wetlands etc. or other site conditions which make it:

1. unlikely that any of the uses allowed in the agricultural district would be located on the adjacent agriculturally zoned land; or

2. so that the properties are sufficiently separated to mitigate incompatibilities of use;

(b) There exists an easement such as a conservation easement on the land adjacent to the proposed plat that restricts agricultural uses in such a manner that protection to future homeowners is equal or better than that provided by the 100 foot setback; or

(c) There are existing residential uses along the lot line of the agriculturally zoned property.

Also on the agenda:
