Ballantyne wants to keep out mixed-income housing. Thoughts?

Hell, this means I'm funnier than ever.

Not as funny as me. You're like a guy who does impressions of Dana Carvey's impressions.

I'm loving this. Screw Ballantyne - not because there are rich people there, but because buying a house out there is a fairly stupid thing to do. The same thing happened with Davis Lake. Eastover and Elizabeth are doing great even though Grier Heights is just around the corner. But they have something Ballantyne doesn't - actual intrinsic value from location. Ballantyne is your classic castle built from sand and a good example of the kind of thing that caused the housing bubble in the first place.

and we are all certain that the city/council has no ties to land or real estate agencies?

Myers Park does well too, and just so happens to border Cherry. Go figure.

so, if someone wanted to build a landfill right beside you home, you would not have anythign to say about it? Sure you would.

You would go through the proper channels to object. Will it change things? Maybe...maybe not. But, you have the right to object and be heard.

Same with Ballantyne. Citizens there have the right to object and the remedy to do such. Not saying that it will change the outcome.

You believe that they should not have a say.....because you don't live there.

I believe that they should have no say unless they buy the land.

I'm just gonna go out on a limb and say Ballantyne has HoAs that tell you how high your trees can be?

Did I just read about low income housing being equal to a landfill...wow

Just so you guys feel better you aren't required to look the people from low income housing in the eyes.
