Despite years of criticism about the profits The Nature Conservancy makes selling land back to local municipalities, Newcomb New York is poised to become its next victim. Their newspaper at http://www.poststar.com/articles/2008/02/28/news/latest/doc47c6c698643f1182362955.txt reports that town officials have already decided to buy land from The Nature Conservancy for development, even though the price is now yet known. The Newcomb supervisor says "It’s in the interest of the town to try to set aside as much private land for housing and whatever business or industry purposes". Really? Would the people he represents agree? Not likely unless they are builders or developers.
Hey Newcomb real estate agents, here's a tip on a sucker. They will commit to buy property without even discussing price!
