Of the remaining 27, acres of farmland, roughly half is considered at risk of development over the next 30 years Greenbelt Alliance Efforts are focused to help protect the most important remaining farmlands and rangelands, where production currently occurs and where it can be most effectively sustained over the long-term. The Authority conserves farms, ranches, and other working landscapes to sustain the economic and environmental viability of local agriculture.

Conservation subdivisions and golf communities also share certain economic dynamics. Buyers in golf course communities pay a premium price for access to a shared amenity: the golf course.
Homebuyers in golf communities value views across the fairway and are willing to pay more to guarantee that the green space—the tees, greens, and fairways—will remain in perpetuity. Similar factors drive the market in conservation communities.

Buyers pay for access to trails and protected open space. They value views of woodlands, vineyards, pastures, or meadows, and these community amenities contribute to increased home values, even if providing the amenities results in smaller lots or a more compact layout of houses. The third project type, the largescale, master-planned conservation community, encompasses hundreds or even thousands of acres and often provides a diverse array of housing types and a wide range of commercial, civic, and recreational facilities.
DC Ranch, for example, started with 8, total acres 3, ha.

Of these, 2, acres 1, ha were devoted to development, including a diverse mix of 2, houses, several golf courses, educational and civic facilities, and mixed-use and commercial development, plus a acre ha linear park. The vast majority of the property, however—over 5, acres 2, ha —was incorporated into the neighboring 16,acre 6,ha McDowell Sonoran Preserve. The same dynamic holds true today.
Far more consumers are drawn to green space than to greens; greenways and natural areas can have the same economic impact as fairways, at far less cost for construction and maintenance.
And today there is the added dimension of locally grown food: orchards, vineyards, and organic gardens are attracting a new generation of ecology- and health-conscious consumer. A number of studies have documented the value of conservation development in reducing stormwater runoff and infrastructure costs. Now, thanks to new research by Jeffrey Milder of Cornell University and Brad Gentry of Yale University, the aggregate scale of conservation development is becoming better known.
