Local Question of the Day — 9/22/05

Issue: Property sells like hot cakes: 44 percent of Dover Bay’s pricy public offering gone in a day/R.J. Cohn, Hagadone News Network

More Info: Property buyers at Dover Bay’s first public offering event Saturday brought offers from as far away as New York and Florida as they reviewed plans and awaited their turn to secure their property of choice. The event was held at “The Barn,” the original 1900s homesteader’s barn that Dover Bay has renovated into a community meeting place.

Question: Developer Ralph Sletagar’s richer. A lot of folks got nice homes in a great subdivision. But are we better off for it overall as a region? Or is this sales pushing the locals further away from their own little dreams of utopia?
