    (1) No parcel included within the district shall be developed to a more intensive use than its existing use at the time of adoption of the ordinance establishing such district for eight (8) years from the date of adoption of such ordinance. This provision shall not be construed to restrict expansion of or improvements to the agricultural or forestal use of the land or to prevent the construction of one (1) additional house within the district, where otherwise permitted by applicable law, for either an owner, a member of an owner's family or for a tenant who farms the land;

    (2) No parcel added to an already established district shall be developed to a more intensive use than its existing use at the time of addition to the district for eight (8) years from the date of adoption of the original ordinance;

    (3) Land used in agricultural and forestal production within the agricultural and forestal district of local significance shall automatically qualify for an agricultural or forestal value assessment on such land pursuant to Chapter 4, Article 19 of the Fairfax County Code and to Code of Virginia, Section 58-769.4 et seq., if the requirements for such assessment contained therein are satisfied;

    (4) The district shall be reviewed by the Board of Supervisors at the end of the eight-year period and that it may by ordinance renew the district or a modification thereof for another eight-year period. No owner of land shall be included in any agricultural and forestal district of local significance without such owner's written approval;

    (5) The applicant shall implement and abide by the recommendations of the Forest Management Plan which was prepared by the Area Forester on October 24, 1995 for the life of the Schreiner Local Agricultural and Forestal District. The Forest Management Plan may be updated from time to time as determined necessary by the Area Forester.

    (6) Those areas delineated as Environmental Quality Corridor (EQC) shall be left undisturbed, with the exception of selective thinning operations performed to enhance existing vegetation and the removal of dead, dying and diseased vegetation as approved by the County's Urban Forestry Branch. The boundaries of the EQC shall be the permanent limits of clearing and grading for the life of the Schreiner Local Agricultural and Forestal District.

    (7) Pursuant to Chapter 109 of the County Code and within 60 days of establishment of the Schreiner Local Agricultural and Forestal District, the applicant shall consult with the Department of Public Works and obtain any permits required for the dumping of debris into the drainageway on Parcel 8A.

    (8) The establishment and continuation of this district depends upon the continuing legality and enforceability of each of the terms and conditions stated in this ordinance. This district, may in the discretion of the Board of Supervisors, be subject to reconsideration and may be terminated if warranted in the discretion of the Board of Supervisors upon determination by a court or any declaration or enactment by the General Assembly that renders any provisions or condition hereof invalid, illegal or unenforceable.
