Agricultural and Forestal District applications accepted until June 13


James City County is currently accepting applications until June 13, 2014 for property additions to the following Agricultural and Forestal Districts (AFDs) in advance of the districts renewal in October 2014:


  • Armistead
  • Barnes Swamp
  • Carter’s Grove
  • Christenson’s Corner
  • Cranston’s Pond
  • Croaker
  • Gordon Creek
  • Gospel Spreading Church Farm
  • Hill Pleasant Farm
  • Mill Creek

An AFD is a district containing one or several contiguous parcels that will be used for agricultural and forestal purposes. Benefits of enrolling include assurance that most AFD land qualifies for use-value taxation, protection of land against developmental pressure and protection against nuisance ordinances. 


Existing property owners enrolled in an AFD will be notified of the renewal and may modify, renew or terminate without penalty membership in the district. 


Please contact the Planning Division at 757-253-6685 or Email for assistance in determining a property’s eligibility, enrollment information or for a copy of the County’s FAQ fact sheet regarding AFDs.
