For once someone has written an article that speaks the truth…its not the expats eating up all the housing, its the zoning laws this Canton has…It does amaze me that Switzerland while being one of the most democratic countries in the world with its direct democracy and referendums, keeps a strong hold on certain things via obscure Swiss laws which seem relegated to the stoneage. There are some families who have owned agricultural land since 4 or 5 generations ago and each one was hoping it would be dezoned so that they could make a profit selling the land…agricultural land gets almost nothing per sqm until the moment it is declassified into buildable…Ah the Swiss or maybe it should be Ah the Genevoise! Actually what doesn’t scare me is that too much agricultural land will be dezoned and that there will be overpopulation, no what worries me is that they will build ugly square appartment blocks with no character that don’t blend in the countryside scenery. I don’t know who is in charge of urban planning in Geneva but there are a few buildings that look like they belong in pre world war USSR, not Switzerland….>>
