California PACE Enabling Statutes

These statutes authorize the PACE program in California, also known as the California Farmland Conservancy Program Act.

Many states have Purchase of Agricultural Conservation Easement (PACE) programs that provide funding to purchase development rights on private agricultural land to permanently protect it from non-farm development, keeping more land available for agriculture.
