About Urban Agriculture Incentive Zones (AB551)

AB551 is a state law that allows land owners in urban areas to receive tax incentives for putting land into agricultural use. For landowners in San Diego County to benefit from this state law, county and city jurisdictions must work together to designate approved Urban Agriculture Incentive Zones.
