DESCRIPTION AND PURPOSE:
The Ag-2, Farm Pasture Zone is designed to maintain the agricultural land base taking into consideration special management practices due to steeper sloped, shallower soils and special wildlife and fish habitats. It is also designed to afford better control over lands where farm and rangelands are interspersed. Foods, herbs, and medicines traditional to the Confederated Tribes are also found in this region making it necessary for the Land Protection Planning Commission or the Board of Trustees to place further restrictions from time to time.
1. There shall be a 79-acre minimum lot size. 2. Land partitions for non-Farm residential uses may be established on generally non-productive agricultural lands upon a finding by the Land Protection Planning Commission that each such use: a) Is compatible with farm uses and is consistent with intent and purposes set forth in the Comprehensive Plan and this Code.

Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation
The Umatilla reservation, Nicht-Yow-Way Country, is the home of the Cayuse, Umatilla and Walla Walla Bands of Native American Indians. When the leaders of the three tribes signed a treaty with the United States in 1855, they ceded 6.4 million acres of homeland in what is now northeastern Oregon and southeastern Washington. The 172,000-acre Umatilla Indian Reservation, almost half of which is owned by non-Indians, includes significant portions of the Umatilla River watershed.
Today the confederation, united under a single tribal government adopted in 1949, numbers over 2,800 members (2011). The Umatilla are governed by a Board of Trustees composed of nine members elected by the General Council. Tribal headquarters are located in Mission, just outside Pendleton, Oregon.
The Umatilla River and Grande Ronde rivers have been the focus of the tribe’s fish restoration activities for more than a decade. Under the tribe’s leadership, salmon were reintroduced in the Umatilla River in the early 1980s. The tribe, along with the state of Oregon, operates egg-taking, spawning, and other propagation facilities that are helping restore salmon runs. The tribe successfully reintroduced Chinook salmon to the Umatilla River after 70 years of extinction.
Other river basins in which the tribe has co-management responsibilities are the Columbia, Snake, Walla Walla, Tucannon, Grande Ronde, John Day, and Imnaha. In recent times, tribal fisheries have occurred only on the Umatilla and Columbia rivers.
Umatilla County was created on September 27, 1862, out of a portion of Wasco County. Umatilla is an Indian term meaning "rippling water" or "water rippling over sand" and has provided the name both for the county and its major river. Lewis and Clark and pioneers traveling the Oregon Trail passed through the area. The gold rush of 1862 brought miners and stock raisers to the mountains and grasslands of Umatilla County. The county expanded after the coming of the railroad in 1881 and the area was open to the development of dry land wheat farming. The fertile land of Umatilla County gives a strongly agricultural base to the county's economy. Fruit, grain, timber, cattle, and sheep are important agricultural products. Recreation, primarily in the Blue Mountains, and tourism, most notably for the annual Pendleton Round-Up rodeo, are also important to the local economy.
