Property tax codes and old growth
Today I talked to an incredibly helpful man (thank you Tony!) who works for the city. He was able to explain our property zoning and how it will be taxed- and he was able to get fairly specific and detailed. We have the huge blessing of being able to leave much of the property untouched, and in this zone, as old-growth forest, we will able to be care for and protect much of it. Which in turn, lowers our property taxes, taxed less on the protected acres (and plenty on our developed acreage, haha). But preserving the old growth and the wildlife is important, and makes our homesite that much more appealing in my mind.
