Canton should not have residential zones

Why in the world are the politicians in Town of Canton trying to control folks living in the country? The Town of Canton has no business having residential zones. All this does is create extra permits, fees and friction among neighbors. The Town of Canton should be rural, period. Was it not just last year that these same “farmer friendly” politicians tried to rezone 5,000 more acres into residential zones? Back in the old days, it was all-rural and farmland, neighbors sorted things out by themselves. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Any laws restricting folks ability grow gardens, orchards and livestock for themselves and their neighbors have no place in the North Country.
