Sec. 27-71.  Intent - District A.

 

The Agricultural District (A) is intended to recognize the use of agricultural land for purposes of farming and other agricultural practices and to protect the land from premature urbanization.  It is essential that scattered, indiscriminate urban development within areas best suited for agriculture be precluded and that orderly urban development be facilitated.  This district is designed to maintain complete agricultural uses within the Norfolk extraterritorial jurisdiction until such time as the natural growth of the municipality precludes preservation thereof.
