Thank you for the response and my answers are in capital letters:
Just a few questions to understand your issue:
44-27-3(a) requires DEM to classify Farms in the FFOS program.
1) Is this 17acre farm one parcel or multiple parcels? MULTIPLE PARCLES
2) If multiple parcels, does each parcel have its own DEM Farm FFOS certificate? NO OR
3) Did DEM approve the 17 acres based on cumulative acreage farm? ALL SEVEN PARCLES WERE APPROVED ON THE SAME APPLICATION.
15 ACRES WILL BE SOLD TO THE TOWN NOW AND THE SELLER WANTS TO GIVE THE TOWN A 5 YEAR LEASE ON THE TWO REMAINING ONE ACRE LOTS AND WILL SELL TO THE TOWN IN 5 YEARS. THE LEASED LOTS WILL BE USED BY THE TOWNN FOR FARMING.
