    • Reducing taxes on agricultural land to promote continued agricultural usage;
    • Stopping the escalation of taxable value when agricultural land is sold or transferred and is maintained in agricultural production;

    • Passage by the township of zoning restrictions on development of sensitive natural areas and wetlands;
    • Passage of a comprehensive Planned Unit Development Ordinance(PUD) which restricts urban sprawl and encourages preservation of open spaces.
