    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    <shaking head in dismay> Looks like another example of regulators gone wild. I'd ask if there is something in the water in California that promotes this nuttiness, but it isn't restricted to California. I have friends in Minnesota who have lake property they can't use because it might offend a passing duck (or environmental activist), but they still have to pay taxes according to what it would be worth if they could use it.

    This is just despicable.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Makes you really love that gov't power. This is likely only step one in a multi-step process. As stated in the article eminent domain makes gov't pay 'fair market value' for the property. So step 1 is to zone it "useless", step 2 is to buy a piece at the now VERY depressed price and the last step is either have a private party (or the gov't itself) buy it ALL up cheap and then rezone and reuse as you wish. Yes they can!

    I'm not sure they will. If their plans call for wilderness, this is the route to take. Stop here. They get to make/keep the property as wilderness, and all without the hassle or liability of ownership. AND they get to continue to collect property taxes.

    Sounds like a legal scam to me.
