I can agree with your statements. Boy are the rights of others ever trampled on when this kind of thing happens.
We have a few folks that built "out in the country" around here, and life was good. Til that farmer up over the hill wanted to build a poultry house, that was gonna lower their quality of life, so he decided that he would give up and sell out. NOBODY wants to buy hardscrabble rock so he subdivided and went about selling building lots. They decided that these building lots would bring in folks that would whine and complain about the goings on in the neighborhood, and besides they bought their lots so they could be in a farming community, not a housing development.
Finally a state court decided that they had perhaps overstepped their rights, and after 3 years of legal wrangling, the farmer was told to build his chicken house, and the "Country Folks" that sought to govern HIS way of life, were ordered to pay for his lost income, and legal fees. They were also advised to contain their business to their 1 acre farmettes.
Seems to me, the whole thing could have been solved very easily. My opinion is, they, as well as you should buy out these offending greedy landowners, before the greedy developers can get ahold of these farms.
PS, Two of these fine country folks lost their homes, and I felt so darned bad that it took almost 2 cases of Old Milwaukee to help me get over it.

As an example of what goes on: There's a pig farm that's been in the Las Vegas valley forever, and I mean forever. They are/were miles from the city itself, or any housing developments. Now the city has caught-up to them and is surrounding them. I don't have to tell anyone here about how the people are whining and crying about them being there, and are trying to force them out. They are trying everyway possible to be responsible to the city folk but that's not good enough. Personally I don't think they should have to as they were there first, and the people who are buying property there knew it when they bought. To my way of thinking that's like buying a house next to the airport and then complaining about the airplanes taking off and landing.

So again I have to ask who's rights are being affected? The pig farm who has been there for years, or the people who are buying property right next to them? If you click on the link it will give you some interesting reading.
