i want some opinions here. are community land trusts a threat to personal freedom? i read these land trusts take away the freedom to own a little vacation cottage or even the right to vacation for a long time like going away for the winter. how can we balance a sense of community with private title of land where the house is? also i read they have better things like a conservation easements that have restrictions so only farmers are allowed to own a farm. even the amish have a very strong community but private title to land. will these community land trusts take over the world?

Yes, definitely.

That might be good for the land and you, having the right to dump toxic chemicals all over yourself doesn't make it the right thing to do. But it might (probably will) turn into a HOA on steroids, total tyranny.

R. Scott : I regard the H.ome O.wners A.ssociation as the peak of a denizen of the very bottom of the Barrel, lower you can't go !

A lawyer once told me that if you break one of the Big Typeset rules, there is never going to be anything in the Small print that is going to help You!

Almost all HOAs now commonly denis you the right to (line) dry!, You can only have so many cars out on the street, and you are often limited to
the color of your shingles,siding and types of fences

My rule of thumb., Never live in a village with a stop light, and never live in a place where you cant pee off of your own back porch !

If it doesn't seem fair or is at least universally unfair, or you just don't like it -move on ! Big AL

don’t get me wrong i think landowners should not own all the bundle of rights like with a conservation easement. affordability restrictions are ok in my opinion. but not owning the land i don’t like. i like the conservation easement way because it still allows private title and prevents a person from destroying the property. can even allow a person to have a couple mini guest cottages for family and friends to visit the farm. i hear that community land trusts do not allow a person to have a mini guest cottage for family friends to visit or at least it seems this way.
