  3. 3. Main “Preservation” Provisions  NCC can be used to preserve agricultural land, open space or historic sites  Results in permanent preservation of resources
  4. 4. Main “Preservation” Provisions  NCC can be used to preserve agricultural land, open space or historic sites  Results in permanent preservation of resources  Use of recorded deed restrictions on preservation area parcels (run with the land)
  5. 5. Main “Preservation” Provisions  NCC can be used to preserve agricultural land, open space or historic sites  Results in permanent preservation of resources  Use of recorded deed restrictions on preservation area parcels (run with the land)  Preserved land may be privately owned; and can be sold to new owners in the future (does not have to be owned by public entity or homeowners association)
