Not trying to be bleak but it seems like no matter what, more rural areas will become more populated and eventually all the mtn towns will be fully blown out.
What are your thoughts?

PeteMahnObviously socialism has nothing to do with building codes. There's extremely simple strategy to keep people out of certain towns/ part of cities etc and this is a part of that. These are two different topics. The aspect that socialism comes into play is when business are under strict regulation by the government. Socialistic societies approve of big government. I don't even need to spend the time going on about this topic.
Hence why I went on about explain how the wealthy keep people out of where they live such as "Snob Zoning" and the list goes on. Conservative's don't approve of big government which means much less regulation and government intervention.

katrinaShort term rentals are causing a huge problem in the real estate market and the local town culture too. Locals can't afford to buy in, resulting in towns full of mostly second homes full of rotating out of towner's.
b0ssIm really starting to beleive that newschoolers is a anti-growth, anti-economic comminist forum.
DeebieSkeebiesill keep it short cuz i want to go off on this for days but just do what you can to help out around the communities if you're a member of them, living there for the winter, whatever. ski towns are now looked at in this disneyland-like lenses that they arent communities, they arent places where people have families to support and obligations and lives, just places for 2nd/3rd/4th homeowners and places for cashed-up ski bums working from home now. just seen as places where people can "Get what they want" out of them. that bothers me. Its just poor workforces that get shit all over by each way and its disappointing and something has to give. Shouts out to all the wonderful non-profits that provide food banks and health services, childcare, just about anything in town because it sucks the 5-year local doesnt want to love thy neighbor
