Brecknock, PA, Municipal Code
By: Brecknock Township (Lancaster County), PA
The township’s zoning code addresses farmland protection. It establishes an AG agricultural district for the township’s most productive agricultural areas and is intended to protect those areas by eliminating uses incompatible with farming (§110-18.A). Lot requirements limit the subdivision of lots from farms and limits the size of lots created for uses other than agriculture (§110-18.C.1). Minimum lot areas for agricultural uses are 20 acres; maximum lot area for non-farming uses is 2 acres (§110-18.C.2). The code also establishes an A-2 agricultural district for agricultural lands less productive than the AG district.
