    Well I think I made the neighborhood mad

    I been in negotiations to buy some undeveloped property that was behind my subdivision. It was going to be a 3rd phase but they never completed it because of drainage issues. Once the neighborhood found out I bought it everybody was beating on my door wanting to buy extra lots to add on the the back of their property. Well I politely told them I was had got the zoning changed back to agricultural so I could clean it up and put some cattle on it. Guess how that went. You guessed it sailed like a lead duck lol they are all mad now saying I am going to stink up and devalue their property.

    Congratulations on the purchase. I would be hard pressed to not respond with the following: "You had the same opportunity that I did. If you wanted to control the property, you should have bought it. You didn't, I did. I think cows will be an improvement as neighbors."

    I would try not to say that but sometimes stuff just slips out. . .

    I have done similar things with properties, it is amazing that when you are done everyone wants a piece. Sometimes I think there is jealousy involved as they did not think of it. I am working on exactly the same thing right now, they cut the sub division down and the field is directly behind our property.

    Hiya,

    Good for you, city folk get cranky when someone else besides them figures something out and gets ahead of them.

    You could always put milk cows and start a small dairy, that way you could sell ice cream, yogurt and raw milk like the family in the next town up did with the same type purchase a few years ago. Now they are on the top 10 list for best ice cream in the state, the place is mobbed in the summer.

    Many of the "posters" here are assuming that the neighbors you speak of are from the "CITY". I don't think you mentioned that in your original post. How did you get the zoning changed back to agricultural without your neighbors knowing about it prior to the change being granted. I'm in the middle of farms here in SC. One of my neighbors recently petitioned the county for a change in zoning from commercial-agricultural use to strictly ag. use. Everyone received a letter from the county about it & was invited to speak their mind over it at a hearing.

    If your neighbors were not advised of zone change, you may find yourself & the planning board members in a law suit. I'm just saying your OP here is a little short on details. I don't know how close your neighbors are to you property wise, but would you like to have your house, back yard, swimming pool subjected to the conditions livestock bring even when they are properly cared for. I'm not speaking against you, but I think you need to consider the impact you could put on your neighbors, including their property values & re sale issues. We all bust our A....'s to get part of the American dream. No one wants to see their part of the dream torn to shreds.
