Special lands districts will provide permitted uses of land that would be nonconforming under open space district zoning. The special lands district is intended to provide areas primarily for rural or estate type living, but allowing certain hobby and/or recreational-agricultural pursuits to be maintained on land parcels of at least ten (10) acres.
