Can anyone confirm (or refute) that property values in Gardiner have actually INCREASED relative to, say the towns west of the Ridge, since the new zoning regs were adopted?
I have long believed that "developable land" only brings higher prices when sold to a developer. (Kinda like an unusual old car. The fact that a collector MIGHT pay you dearly for it doesn't raise what a scrapper will pay for the vehicle.) And that doesn't seem to have happened much in the restricted zones of the ridge, either before or after the new regs.
