I did a Cyburbia search on "ethics" but didn't find this exact topic. I'm wondering what are the ethics of owning real estate in the community where you work as a planner. I looked on http://www.planning.org/ethics/ethicscode.htm but it didn't address the situation in specific terms. I'm referring more to buying a historic building as part of a local development group to rehab it rather than buying speculative vacant land. If a local group asked you to join their group for this purpose would you? (assuming you had the money).
