What Can We Preserve?
Government Has To Cooperate!
By Ronald Reagan, Governor of California

Gov. Ronald Reagan(R)YOSEMITE VALLEY - - Now that we've come to a little more static population, we have time for taking stock and asking what we can do to preserve the things we want to preserve.
     For instance, we can look up and down the coast at areas not in public ownership and see if any of it should be preserved for future generations. We can't tell an owner to keep his land but do nothing with it. If that land is important to the rest of California, then the state should buy it.
     In California 91 per cent of the people live in urban areas. And obviously there is going to be a sprawl around those areas. Some developers are now building with the idea of creating a country atmosphere -- what California had when there was more space and fewer people.
     What inducements can we offer a subdivider, for example, to build around just a portion of the land and leave the rest as open space? The government has to cooperate.
     You can't encourage a builder to leave the open space and then tell him to pay taxes on it as if it were land ready for subdivision. If he is willing to declare it open space, local government should tax him only on what it is being used for, not what it could be used for.

[Editor's Note: The Ronald Reagan display was featured at The Hoover Institution and Library, which held a free exhibit open to the public on May 12 through August 15, 1998. The exhibit was displayed at the Memorial Exhibit Pavilion, next to The Hoover at Stanford. One of the displays was "Tower Sunset Magazine: A Century of Western Living, 1898-1998". It featured posters, documents, photographs and memorabilia tracing one hundred years of the West's rich historic connections to Stanford University and Herbert Hoover .]
