As I said, the LAND value may go up (which would raise taxes a bit), but since that is only a small part of the total value it won't make a major difference.

The house itself is NOT worth any more...

That makes no sense. If your house is much smaller than that million dollar one, it will never be valued the same.

The value of the land might go up a little, but that is only a small portion of...

Doesn't have to be any particular type of housing - just find a piece of land and then someone who can construct a house.

Tell them you can only afford $x dollars, and have them build whatever...

Well, Alaska is 99% public lands, so I guess that is the top end of the scale - not that that could even work in a state like NY, but...

Certainly seems like that shouldn't be hard to add - much like that heat wiring that can be put along the edges of roofing to keep ice from forming and making water back up into the house. Even...

I guess that would depend where the tree in question is. If it is not close to a building or the wires, then taking it down completely should be cheaper - just cut across the bottom, let it fall...

Wonder if that easier accessibility might also have something to do with it (the concern of more problems, as we often see at other more easily accessible spots)?

Depends on what they want to ski and how much.

Like many things, those tickets you mention are fairly high, but if they live nearby (since you say within the blue line) and want to go frequently,...

At least that makes sense. If you are going to do practice for something, why not practice where you may actually find something that got overlooked.

After all, people not looking (like hunters...

Must just depend on the site - for instance looking at North South Lake in the Catskills (which is DEC) they allow you to bring wood as long as it's within 50 miles. There is a form that you are...

That makes sense - while just clearing a spot for a campsite can likely be done with just items (tools) carried in, building a lean-to usually requires more to bring in the materials. So, while...

Should be a fairly easy solution - remove just enough posts at the end to allow a vehicle to fit through. Put a sign there noting that it is for EMERGENCY use only.

Not sure how this is a STATE action (since the group doing it is private). The state may say it's OK but they didn't set it up.

Also, it would actually help with the parking and walking on the...

Perhaps if they had all been Bicycle branded ones, people could have ridden them all the way? ;)
