The real question is what kind of place do the residents of St. Helena want to live in. Just as maintaining the vineyards meant restricting the amount of profit farmers could make from their land to retain an agricultural economy, restricting the profitability of urban parcels will be necessary to retain a small-town community. Unfortunately St. Helena, desperate for the easy money of TOT, will probably veer ever further in the direction of Yountville, a Potemkin village that presents the image of a small town for the benefit of its predominantly transient population. There will be healthy revenues to support an almost nonexistent resident population, as people seeking authentic small town life move to Oregon. Those that work in the tourist venues will not, of course, be able to afford to live there.
