What do I have to do to apply to be on Greenbelt?
You can request a Greenbelt application from the Assessor's Office which requires notarized signatures of all the owners of the property. This application is returned to the Assessor's Office along with a check payable to the Summit County Recorder in the amount as specified by the Assessor's Office for the recording fee on the application. The application is then put into a pending file for two years while it is being visited regularly by the Assessor's Office to make sure it is a bona fide farming operation.
