As the Executive Director of the Coalition for Property Rights of Florida, I find it contradictory that anyone using the name Coalition for Property Rights would in fact be seeking to impose their vision on others. The mission of all true pro-property rights organizations should be to promote individual private property rights which means those who want to keep their own land rural should be permitted to do so (and can do so through personal deed restrictions on their own land) and also that those who would like to develop increased densities should be allowed to do so as well - it is called equality of opportunity. Both uses are reflective of the freedom which should exist in American to pursue one's individual dreams and personal preferences for the use of one's privately-owned property. The vision or opinion any third party has for the use of land he/she/they do not own, did not labor to own, have taken no financial risk as owners take when developing their land, should be respected by local officials making land use decisions as a freedom of speech right....but at the end of the day, those officials should responsibly vote to support the owners' right to pursue their dream for their property. Any individual or group opposing increased development can affect by impacting their own personal density - by placing restrictions on developing on their own land. All private property rights begin and end at one's own property line. If representatives of the Humboldt Coalition for Property Rights are promoting anything other than independent, free choice for the use of one's own private land - they may simply be using the title to hide another very different agenda and should cease doing so.
