dc.description.abstract Efforts to preserve farmland are often initiated with the stated goals of protecting open space, supporting local farming, reducing sprawl, and protecting the environment. Policies that achieve this goal alter the future uses of farmland and therefore, may influence property values. This study finds some evidence that the Greenbelt is effectively altering development patterns and influencing land values. However, the evidence of an effect is limited to a small region within the protected countryside. en_US
