CHAPTER 14D RIGHT TO FARM
Article 2. Purpose.
Sec. 14D-02-30. Good neighbor policy.
In addition, the further purpose and intent of this article is to promote
a good-neighbor policy by requiring notification of owners, purchasers,
residents and users of property adjacent to or near agricultural operations on
agricultural land of the inherent potential problems associated with being
located near such operations, including, without limitation, noise, odors,
fumes, dust, smoke, insects, operation of machinery during any time of day or
night, storage and disposal of manure, and ground or aerial application of
fertilizers, soil amendments, seeds, herbicides and pesticides. The city intends
that, through mandatory disclosures, owners, purchasers, residents and users
will better understand the impact of living or working near agricultural
operations and be prepared to accept attendant conditions from properly
conducted agricultural operations as a normal and necessary aspect of living in
a community with a strong rural character and an active agricultural sector.
