What does the county receive when it purchases an agricultural preservation easement on a property?

0

The county receives a deed of easement on the property. The conditions of this easement extinguish the development rights for the property, while the landowner retains all other rights of a fee simple owner. The agricultural land preservation easement does not grant the public any rights of access or rights to the use of the land. Instead, it prohibits the owner from ever developing the land.
