California is a huge real estate market, underpinned by land of various uses, sizes and locations. This market has suffered perhaps more severely than any land market in the US with the exception of certain of North Atlantic states. It is also the epicenter of government intrusion in land use and rights. Its tax, spend, and subsidize policies will make your eyes cross. How has this over-regulation and undermining of private property rights resulted in reduction of land values, competitive disadvantage for agriculture, limitations on our birthright as Americans and all of our wallets? Is this a trend coming your way? How do we protect against the disastrous effects government interference with land in the Golden State has on many aspects of our lives and land out our back door? Join Reid L. Rosenthal for a three way interview with California Broker Billy Long of Ranch Marketing Associates, and longtime North Californian land man and Broker Don Rickey.

The last three Land Patriot shows have been from the vast lands of the Western states. They have revealed startling intrusions by government at all levels into private land, the land rights of Westerners affecting the rights and pocket books of all Americans. This week Reid Rosenthal goes to the idyllic, famous sand dunes of Cape Cod Massachusetts with Broker and Property expert Jack Cotton. The “folks” back East mask it with different terminology, but the stark similarities of the attacks on private land rights and your fundamental legacy as Americans occurring in the Commonwealth Of Massachusetts though the parcels be smaller, and 2,000 miles the Atlantic side of the Rockies, will chill you. It should.

It is happening everywhere–Land use that breaks people, communities, and town coffers. If it has not happened yet to your community–it will! Guaranteed. Downtowns decimated, businesses closed, congestion, traffic and layer upon layer of unneeded poorly planned Big Box retail development. That land use done poorly can affect your land, your values, and yes even your job. It will certainly deplete your wallet in the big picture. Think you can’t stop the alliance of politics, town fathers who won’t listen, and Big Box Big Money? Think again! A case study of a huge battle the good guys won. Tune in to listen to Reid Rosenthal talk to Jan Rosenthal Townsend about how she put together a coalition as diverse as developers, the Sierra Club and a carpenter’s union along with grass roots to stop a huge mistake, save a small community’s main street businesses, and forestall fiscal disaster for her little town of 6,000.
