1. Auburn's Agriculture, Forestry and Resource Protection Zone Marker
Inscription.  Auburn's Agriculture, Forestry and Resource Protection Zone was created in the 1960's in an effort to prevent urban sprawl and to preserve our working native lands. This zone limits residential building unless it is connected to a viable farm or forestry enterprise. Our current "Ag Zone" protects about 18,000 acres within our city and is one of the largest existing zones within any municipality in our state. Controversial and unusual in its intent, nonetheless Auburn is indeed fortunate to have this large amount of land preserved for today's residents and hopefully generations to come.
