Kinda hard for me to feel sorry for the town.  One hog confinement they are worried about?  I’ve got more than 10,000 head of hogs within 2,000 feet of my house, and going out to a 1 mile radius there are some 27,000 head.  In addition to that, within that 1 mile radius there are somewhere around 5,000 head of cattle.

I think the most telling thing in the article was that he offered to sell the land to the town or neighbors, but nobody was interested. They want to control the land, but not pay for the control. To me, the fight is about protecting that development groups profits from the property they purchased.

+1, my dad use to say "put your money, where your month is".  Seems like a an easy solution, town buys all the land around it. Rents it out on THEIR terms, maintaining COMPLETE control. 

 

Could tell the renter "you can't grow corn, because it blocks our view" to "you can't plant/harvest between 5pm and 9am and no weekends, because the noise, will awaken people".  As a few examples (possibly ridiculous rules to farmers, but not city folks).   The growing corn one is one that I actually had a landlord request ONCE.  For some reason, they didn't remain a landlord.  :cool:

On the other hand, we don’t know anything about the offer. He may have asked a pie in the sky price just to say he offered and then be able to blame them for turning it down.

This country was farmland and farm roads first.  The suburbs came much later.

I dont  know the answer but i think some of the concern in my  area is we can live near buy the standard  Comercial  hog or chicken or livestock/Dairy operation but the mega outfits will ruin the value of your property . In our County   near a  nice small town 12 layer units and 4 large hog units and several 3 unit broiler units all close together . The folks that live down wind of the prevailing breeze say it is overwhelming ,  just a bit to much . They could live with a couple of confinement units but not this many , Totally ruined the value of there property. Does the statement ,Tuff darts , farms were here first ,,,,,,This is country,,,,,,,apply here ??

We’ve had the same, didn’t like when corn was planted as it blocked “the view”. Made sure we planted corn on the field that butted up behind them every chance we got.

I see two problems. For a municipality to purchase land they must have money which comes in the form of taxes. So the question becomes are the surrounding citizens All willing to pay increased taxes for the land purchases. 

The second question would be all the renter provisions mentioned. You could make it so strict that no one can use the land.
