The case currently on appeal before the high court, which a clerk said could take months to decide, focuses on whether or not MAWC’s non-agricultural uses are precluded by the Egan Slough Zoning District, which was first created two decades ago to protect and preserve agricultural land in the area, but was expanded to include the MAWC property in 2018.
