Rural Preserve Property Tax Program
A bill signed into law on April 15, 2011 has made significant changes to the Rural Preserve Property Tax Program. The law eliminates the need for the participant to obtain a Conservation Assessment Plan or sign a covenant to enroll a parcel. Therefore, the Stearns County Soil & Water Conservation District is no longer involved in the Green Acres and Rural Preserve programs. Participants and applicants will work with the Stearns County Assessor's office.
