They aren't all that numerous but they go out of their way to appear that way. Its the same dozen or so people who go to all the different townships and are members of different groups and portray themselves as concerned citizens. I'm sure my name has gone on some lists because I stand and point them out wherever I encounter them.
One local group we face is the Raisin Valley land trust.
The Raisin Valley Land Trust
They have the help of the federal and state government in the sense that landowners get tax breaks for signing on with them. Unfortunately, people miss the small print where it basically renders the property to be useless.
In Jackson Michigan, the EPA encouraged the city to impose a parking lot tax due to rainwater not reaching the ground. When the city asked who would get the money collected the EPA told them to keep it. Needless to say the city was sold on that idea.

Land Trusts are the worst of the worst. They border illegality on most of their deals and are often taking advantage of elderly folks who have been on their lad for decades.
