To what extent should we regulate wildlife-friendly fencing?


9.A. Clarify current standards (updated status quo).

9.B. Option 9.A, except reduce the agricultural exemption threshold to 35 acres for fencing.

9.C. Option 9.A or 9.B, except that the exemption would not apply if in a wildlife migration corridor.

9.D. Remove all exemptions and require any structural repair or replacement to come into compliance.


Direction: Sites classified as “agricultural” by the Assessor that are at least 70 acres should be generally exempt from wildlife friendly fencing standards. Create a working group to identify a collaborative approach to allowing continued permeability and migration through development.
