Conservation Land for Public use

A new Sierra Nevada Mountain parcel in California photo
  This recent purchase kept this, or these, parcel(s) from commercial development.  Here in Maine there are many parcels that are purchased with public funds for the public good.  The population isn't getting any smaller; opportunities for making money appear; or, development can be halted by a purchase such as these.
  I can imagine that hotels would have been built, condos, cabins and similar uses would have taken place on this parcel.  Instead the public will have a place to hike, hunt, or camp in.  It's a win win situation for the public.
