(9) Special Standards for Agricultural Retention Development within the Agricultural Retention Zone. The following special standards shall apply to all parcels of land within an Agricultural Retention zone when approved in accordance with this chapter:

(a) Where more than one home site would be permitted in a proposed development on a portion of the Agricultural Retention zone that does not contain previously divided lots of approximately five (5) acres and smaller, then the maximum lot size of additional home sites (beyond one home site) shall be limited to a maximum of two (2) acres in size in order to conserve farmable land. In this case where small lots of five (5) acres or less have not been previously created (approximately 3,900 acres of the Agricultural Retention zone), the sixteen (16) acre density allowed and the maximum lot size for home sites (two (2) acres) will increase the percentage of agricultural reserve retained to approximately eighty-eight (88) percent of the total development site while decreasing the size of the developable area for homesites to approximately twelve (12) percent of the total development site.

(b) A minimum of either seventy-five (75) percent (lands already divided into five (5) acre parcels) or approximately eighty-eight (88) percent (lands not divided into five (5) acre or smaller parcels) of the area to be developed shall be reserved for agricultural land uses as shown in subsections (7) and (8) of this section; provided, however, that if the parcel is greater than fifty (50) acres, the landowner may exclude any additional fifty (50) acre blocks of land under his ownership from the development site. The agricultural reserve shall be noted on the preliminary master site plan (PMSP) and final master site plan (MSP) and shall state that the reserve is to remain in agriculture in perpetuity. Once an agricultural reserve is established, the reserve area shall not be rezoned nor shall plat alterations or boundary line adjustments be allowed which would remove the land from its status as an agricultural reserve.

(c) The minimum residential lot area, width, frontage and yard requirements, setback standards, street standards, and building heights applying to development in this zone will be established in the preliminary master site plan, as approved in conformance with Chapter 33.23 CCC.

(d) A transition buffer shall be established within the perimeter boundaries of the development section of an agricultural retention development to assure the development is compatible to abutting property through appropriate screening and/or setbacks. The width of the transition buffer shall be at least fifteen (15) feet unless more appropriate standards are approved in the preliminary master site plan. The transition buffer shall consist of screening, landscaping, fencing or structural setbacks as appropriate to ensure compatibility to abutting property.

(e) The development portion should occupy that portion of the tract which is least appropriate for agricultural uses; provided, that the development section should meet all of the requirements of the Clallam County Critical Areas Code. Consideration shall be given to site conditions conducive to agriculture in reviewing the development portion location, such as maintenance of large contiguous blocks of farmland to allow for ease of equipment use and harvesting operations, minimizing unusable isolated portions of farmland within the development, soils, irrigation availability, winds, solar power, etc.

(f) The maximum number of dwelling units per gross acre of the parcel subject to the Agricultural Retention development shall be determined as outlined in subsection (10) of this section. The maximum number of dwellings within a single Agricultural Retention development area shall be fourteen (14) dwelling units.

(g) All final plats approved pursuant to this chapter shall include a notice that agricultural uses of the land are favored uses in this zone and that noise, tree removal, odors, insects, fumes, dust, smoke, operation of machinery, the storage and disposal of manure, and the application by spraying or otherwise of chemical fertilizers, soil amendments, herbicides, and pesticides generated by agricultural land activities on the agricultural reserve site shall not be considered nuisances by the county if best management practices as defined by the Clallam County Conservation District are in use by the operator.

(h) The agricultural land reservation in all Agricultural Retention developments shall be a minimum of fifteen (15) acres in area.

(10) Maximum Residential Density for Agricultural Retention Developments within an Agricultural Retention Zone. The maximum density of residential development within this zone which can be used on-site for an Agricultural Retention development shall depend upon the pre-existing status of divided lots within the proposed agricultural retention development. In the case where the development is proposed on lands that are not divided in an existing pattern of contiguous parcels of approximately five (5) acres or less in size, then the maximum density which can be utilized on-site shall be one dwelling per sixteen (16) acres, with the remaining residential density calculated at one dwelling per five (5) acres plus a density bonus, available for transfer of development rights to areas outside the Agricultural Retention zone or for purchase of development rights.

In the case where the development is proposed on lands that are divided in an existing pattern of contiguous parcels of approximately five (5) acres or less in size, then the maximum density which can be utilized on-site shall be one dwelling per five (5) acres plus a density bonus. In either case the maximum total residential density shall be determined according to the formula [Gross acres developed x 0.30 = total development rights (rounded down to the nearest whole number)]. The number of units allowed in the development section and the number of development rights for sale off-site (areas not previously divided in small lots) are shown in the following table:
