What other ways may the Williamson Act Agreement be cancelled?
  1. The agreement may be canceled by mutual agreement between the Board of Supervisors and the landowner if the Board finds that a number of circumstances exist which make the cancellation of the contract appropriate. If the necessary findings can be made, a cancellation fee shall amount to 12-1/2% of the full market value of the property relieved of the restriction placed upon it by the Land Conservation Act.
  2. The agreement becomes null and void when an action is filed under eminent domain proceedings and no penalty is imposed.
