Hawaii Forbids Limiting Agricultural Activities on Agricultural Land

July 6, 2004, Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle signed SB 2246, prohibiting private deed restrictions or easements from restricting agricultural uses on state-classified agricultural land. Hawaiian agricultural land is unique in the U.S. in that it is classified and planned for agriculture by the state planning agency. The law was written in response to restrictions in some subdivision and homeowners association covenants that prevent productive use of state-classified agricultural land.
