a few more details would help us understand a bit better.
It seems like a man of your ever flowing fountain of knowledge that you have to get a business approved by the county before you can open a business. The way that the county approves many businesses is by zoning the property for that business. That way years down the road someone can't have your business closed by a complaint. They have to go to the county board of commissioners to have the zoning laws changed to do much beside gather a petition.
When the subdivision was built my land was not posted. Anyone that wanted to hunt here was welcome. I let the people that moved into the subdivision ride their 4 wheelers on my property, hunt, shoot, use it like it was theirs.
Then I discovered you cannot be kind to the public at large. They will see your property as public land. They will attempt to control what you do with your property because it interferes with their use of your own land.
Now I just hang up the phone when someone from the POA calls. My lawyer will be in his office, they can talk to him.
