Recently there was an article in the local paper about a guy who'd like to 'develop' his property. He's got, oh, I dunno...about six hundred acres on the top of a mountain. Okay, big hill, but for some geographic regions it's a mountain. He'd like to have a cluster of homes at the top, with one or two acre parcels, then leave the rest 'forested'. Now, several of the homeowners in the area (those at the bottom of the really big hill) are complaining. They don't want him to build homes, saying it doesn't fit with the 'rural lifestyle' that the area is designated as. They would prefer he sell 20 acre parcels. So I'm left wondering...does someone need acreage to live a rural lifestyle? Is a lifestyle dependant on how much acreage a person owns?
