Damn right.Honestly, if I were you, I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for people to step up, it seems in todays world, until a valuable object is missing, most people do not seem to care, sad but true
In MY area, we have ”Conservancies”. They bought up 1000’s of acres of farmland that was going en mass to the developer before our town lost its charm & character. Thank the Lord for those folks. Wealthy people who were also visionary. One in particular was able to raise funds from people in other parts of the country looking for tax write offs, or believed in the preservation of open space enough to pen big checks.
I saw an opening for a private contractor and farmer to fill the void left by all the farmers who got run out of town and seized the opportunity.
Now we, along with the underpaid conservancy’s staff help keep the Conservancy lands mowed, trails cleared and crops farmed to keep our little town looking as close to the way it looked 50 to 300 years ago as possible. Developers have been beaten back by deed restricted open space forever for all to enjoy.
It works, you just need a person who has wealth, vision, and a philanthropic ability to help raise funds. Extremely wealthy people are looking for avenues to tax write offs.
