Not farmable due to terrain, and there’s a creek running through it. Essentially low value land for development purposes and for farming (a good indicator of terrain variation is roads. You can see how curvy the road is there, that’s usually an indicator of elevation charges or natural impediments.

 where are my 2-5 acres lots on the peninsula that pay 40k in property taxes.  Show me your examples that back up your claims instead

I'm not sure how much clearer I can make this for you.

 

The farmland that you want out of the ALR so you don't have to pay capital gains, is taxed so heavily when it's out of the ALR, that it gets sold for development.

 

You see all those small lots adjacent to ALR farmland? Tally up the land there, and its values to get your figure.

I've exhausted myself already.

 

Why not prove me wrong with your home, though? You said you live on non-ALR farmland and pay low taxes. Just use your place as an example.

I still think you are confusing developable land with non developable.

An A-1 lot non ALR with a house on it has the same assessed value and municipal taxes as an A-1 lot in the ALR with a house on it.

An A-1 lot that has had it's usage changed by a zoning change, OCP change, provincial govt mandate etc...whatever, is obviously then worth a higher amount and pays higher taxes.

I’m referring to farmland, yes, not undevelopable or low value land for development.
