In these times of raising taxes left and right to preserve necessary programs like infrastructure maintenance and education spending how do they justify spending $500k of state money to buy development rights from a rich farmer. No kidding. Notice that the amount paid wasn't mentioned in the article. Now why is that?

What a beautiful farm and to build houses will ruin the view as you drive by. It is theirs and should be allow to do as please. How about the set up a toll booth and charge a dollar to the view. That way they won't have to sell and help pay the taxes. If they don't want houses, how about a mall or sewage plant?

I have no problem with the wealthy farmers selling their development rights or building houses. I have a problem with using tax dollars in times of economic stress.
