Does anyone know if there are any nice subdivisions planned in the future? Besides joyview, briar lake, and Wernings. I know that it is a bad economy but am hoping to build a new home in a few years and would like to build on a nice lot.(by nice lot I mean not in a farm field facing another house in the backyard). It seems all of the subdivisions in Columbia are very plain. Any news would be appreciated.

Yea, Stonehenge sub is amazing for the area it's a couple miles behind the Monroe county YMCA. Kinda pricy but beautiful. Lots of open lots. And I believe they have a couple large man made lakes.

They are great if you don't mind sending your kids to Belleville West high school.

You want to live in brellinger but can't afford it. Oh wait, those houses are in a field and most of them are back to back. How about a jungle? There is one right across the river from downtown st louis.

We're selling our newly built home, quitting our jobs and going on welfare. Trying to get one of the new low income rentals in Columbia Lakes. We just want more disposable income.

No it is NOT Waterloo, i indeed Belleville School District. That's one of the reasons it has not taken off to well. Also, the majority of the subdivision is in St. Clair County.

there are still a few lots in joyview that face the woods. I would not buy a house where if I look out my back door the view is my neighbors kitchen.

The problem with Joyview is the location. If Gall Road was in better condition, I would consider it.

Not all the Homes in Columbia lakes are low income asshole, there are nice houses for 250,000 and up with nice families not everyone has to keep up with the Jones and have a million dollar home. There is single people just starting out up here and that doesn't mean they are low income maybe you need to get a real life. Plus who is more stupid to pay 8-10k on taxes no home is worth that.
duh

Are people considering moving out of Illinois? The state is broke, real estate taxes just went up again, and they already take more out of your paycheck. Illinois is the highest for welfare recipients and medicaid so that is a bigger burden as well. Are people going to keep putting up with it, or move? Just wondering.

an omen for the rest of the country if Obama stays in office. He will ensure us that the rest of the country will suffer as bad as IL has under his former leadership :(

I don't care where you live as only a small portion of that subdivision is in Monroe County or in Columbia School District and you know it so I know which one of a few houses you must live in. Most of the subdivision is required to go to Belleville unless you opt for private schools and you know it!!

The new subdivision concept takes a paramilitery skew. Garrisons, food pantry style bunkers, off grid energy, and own water source. Evacuation tunnels and spotter towers. Lots start at 90,000 payable in hard currency only, ex military 10 per cent discount
