    Anyone know anything about lake conservancies?

    A large chunk of property on the lake that my family has had a cottage on for several decades is rumored to have been sold to a developer.

    I would like to see if anything can be done to restrict development of the lake front property.

    the land is around 1000 acres, so there is plenty of space to put up Mc Mansions if that’s what’s going to happen. I would just hate to have houses spoiling my sunsets in the summer.

    Then you shoulda bought said property.

    I bought three empty lots on the corner of my street. I park trailers there, firewood, snow, pallets of bricks and other junk that I don't want cluttering up my own house.

    For a while I would get calls from the town stating that they've had complaints. After the third or fourth call I politely told the town girl that the next time she receives a complaint about my property she should tell the complainer to make me an offer to buy the property. Why the fuck would someone else get a say in what goes on on my property when they're not the ones paying taxes on it? I haven't receiver any calls since.

    My gut reaction to your post is that you should mind your own business (or purchase the land if you want to keep your sunset).

      If I had the $10,000 per acre asking price I would have.

      considering the fact that our cottage was one of the first to be built on the lake it is at least a little bit my business.

          So what was the property before ? In the adirondacks here there is the paper company land that has cabins on and every once in a while they sell to the state and they tear or burn them down.

            It's not the developer's fault you're poor.

            Have you put yourself in their shoes? They just spent a shitload ($10 million----I did the maths) of money on an investment property, and I'd imagine a good return is part of their plan.

                I can't stand it when other people prevent me from enjoying my own property.

                  So just because you own a piece of land you think you should have a say in what every bordering land owner does with theirs?

                  I feel like there are a few in here who buy a house near an airport, then petition to regulate the noise from the airport.

                    Sounds more like the other way around for the OP, he bought a quiet house and then someone buys up the land to build an airport.

                    And yes, if you own a piece of land, you should be entitled to enjoy it without neighbouring properties disrupting that. In other words, the sound, sights, smell, etc. should all be reasonable. I sure as fuck would be protesting if the protected natural area behind my house was one day slotted for a huge property development when I bought the house knowing it was a protected area.

                        Nobody said it was a protected area

                          It's some sort of heritage site or something, ancient artifacts and other crap in there apparently. Hence the city calls it protected.
