"The end of the Great Recession must be close at hand.This is unusual:
After about a five-year absence, a developer came before the Culpeper Planning Commission last night with plans in hand."
"Some units would have detached 'accessory' units (apartments over garages), which owners of the main houses could rent."More:
"If the proposed rezoning is approved, the new subdivision will have homes that vary in width from 24 feet to 60 feet and sell from $250,000 to about $450,000."This area is out Route 211 to Luray - it's farm-friendly and while the road is adequate, it's rather sad to see it developed in this way. I hope it turns out to be a self-sustaining neighborhood and not just a commuter neighborhood. I'm not even sure why this will work -- there are other developments on hold much closer to Northern Virginia.
True story: six years ago, in 2005, I ran into a man who worked for a car rental place. He told me how excited he was to be so prosperous -- in just few more years, his house near this neighborhood would be worth a million dollars. They're selling for less than a third of that now, of course.
