||Section 9.10 Agriculture District (AG) A. Intent. The intent of the Agriculture District is to enable productive farming, encourage the continuation of contiguous blocks of active farms, preserve the rural character of the Township, and allow very low density housing that is compatible with the Township’s agricultural heritage. This district further intends to preserve woodlands and wetlands associated with farms that because of their natural physical features, are useful as water retention, surface water purification and groundwater recharge areas, provide a habitat for plant and animal life, and have an important aesthetic and scenic value that contributes to the unique character of the agricultural district. The district intends to preserve, foster, and encourage its rural character by allowing low density development and preserving open spaces, natural terrains, trees, wild life, streams, wetlands and other natural features. Residential developments in this district shall be designed to maintain, foster, and encourage the rural character. Agriculture Districts are intended to be located in those areas of the Township designated for that use in the Master Plan and in historically farmed areas.
