Countries around the world intelligently share their beautiful environment without losing their beautiful environment. Rather than triggering a war between out-of-town owners of single-family properties vs. long-time-in-town-residents, we should explore how other cities, states and countries have preserved certain areas for long term residents while also intelligently constructing low-to-mid-rise-vacation rentals and condos – which usually have dramatically better views of the town and the ocean. In short this should not evolve into “Winner Take All” or “Well see you in court” which can take many months or years.
In the meantime there are oodles of millionaires out there that are licking their chops over transforming many communities across America into “single family mini-motels” which suddenly appear, especially in Oregon, without any guidance from the Oregon Land Conservation and Development Commission or any other land use options. There are an abundance of richie riches out there who are now devoted to transforming single-family homes into high profit turnstiles. Money no longer talks. It’s a blasting bullhorn.
