    (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 years from the date of adoption of such ordinance. This provision shall not be constructed to restrict expansion of or improvements to the agricultural and forestal use of 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 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 Virginia Code Section 58.1 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 it may by ordinance renew the district or a modification thereof for another eight-year period. No owner(s) 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 Soil and Water Conservation Plan dated January 7, 2008 for the life of the Krop Local Agricultural and Forestal District. The Soil and Water Conservation Plan may be updated from time to time as determined necessary by the Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservation District;

    (6) The applicant shall implement and abide by the recommendations of the Forest Management Plan which was prepared by the Area Forester on January 9, 2008 (as may be updated from time to time as determined necessary by the Area Forester) for the life of the Krop Local Agricultural and Forestal District.

    (7) 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, at 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 illegal or unenforceable. The reconsideration shall be in accordance with procedures established by the Board of Supervisors and communicated to the property owner(s) to demonstrate that the determination by a court or the declaration or enactment by the General Assembly does not apply to the conditions of this district.
