01:26:33
Does viewshed have any value?
dana millar
01:27:45
national heritage designation increases or decreases value?
KAT!
01:29:40
I think it depends on your definition of “value” - price of the land for monetary value, or protection of habitat for ecological value.
deborahsimpson
01:32:12
Can you create solar fields in wetlands?
Margaret (Peg) Brady
01:34:57
Have the land conservation orgs included carbon sequestration in their ecological land analyses? if so can you provide examples?
Suzanne
01:38:31
What about current use or condition of adjacent properties or neighborhood? How does this influence the ecological assessment or appraisal?
dana millar
01:38:37
If you wanted to maintain ownership of your property, however sell your development rights how isn the value determined?

Does development pressure affect appraisal value
Shappy LaPointe
01:43:32
Are there different regulations for different types of wetlands, vernal pool, seasonal brook, marshland??
Suzanne
01:45:23
What if an adjacent property was just sold, how would the intentions of a new adjacent owner figure into an appraisal or ecological assessment? This is an actual situation, not hypothetical.
George Marsh
01:45:38
Why isn't land to be sold for Conservation valued financially for multiple ecological values--more eco values should increase $$ value as much as development!
Margaret (Peg) Brady
01:47:05
ACEC also have buffers too
Helena Hughes

A nice basic question: what defines or constitutes “conservation protection”

Margaret (Peg) Brady

Laney Wilder

Can appraisals of a property change over time? If so, how does one appraiser justify changes to appraisal if different from a previous appraisal? Or, what could cause an appraisal to change over time?
Suzanne
01:51:01
Are land trusts subject to appropriation by state or federal use or emergency/crisis use, short or long term?
Sarah Wells, North Quabbin Regional Landscape Partnership
01:51:17
Larry, the only difference is that we call them restrictions in MA, but every other state tends to call them easements

Is the property value (difference between 1st and 2nd appraisal) paid out in one lump sum and how long does the reimbursement take?
Shappy LaPointe
01:56:15
The focus seems to have been on developable land. Is the value of land rich in natural attributes, not developable comparable in value. Are there interested buyers in such land.
