Zone: A-20
Zoning Description: Agricultural 20-Acres
Zoning Purpose: The agriculture (A-20) district is provided and designed to protect and preserve lands suited for farming, ranching, the production of food and fiber, open space, recreation, services or related purposes and minimal rural estate living, and to protect from encroachment of incompatible uses. Other purposes of this district include protection and enhancement of the economic base of the county, as well as the protection of environmentally sensitive lands, such as areas subject to flooding, wetlands, unstable soils and areas with steep slopes or other geologic conditions. This zone anticipates limited commercial uses that have similar impacts to agricultural uses and provides services in rural areas that are compatible and commensurate with typical commercial agricultural uses. The permitted and conditional uses for the A-20 zone are intended to be compatible with agricultural uses while encouraging economic growth and reasonable options for the use of private property. The district accommodates more intense uses when the required services are made available and the potential cost to Iron County residents of providing the services necessary to support more intense development and activities is minimal.


Financing will be offered for this parcel.  A down payment of 10% and closing costs will be due at the auction.  The remaining balance can be financed at a variable rate of prime plus 2.5% for up to a 20 year term.
