Williamson Act Contract Letter of Interest Period Open

Williamson Act Contract Letter of Interest Period Open

Yolo County has opened a 90 day letter of interest period for new Williams Act contracts and will be accepting letters until May 23, 2016.

The California Land Conservation Act of 1965, commonly referred to as the Williamson Act, enables local governments to enter into contracts with private landowners for the purpose of restricting specific parcels of land to agricultural or related open space.  In return, landowners receive property tax assessments which are much lower than normal because they are based upon farming and open space uses as opposed to full market value.
