We need more subdivisions. We also need more restaurants on Interstate Drive, more billboards, and more crack houses.

More subdivisions shows growth in our community. It would also show the housing market is rebounding. How can this be bad for Cookeville/Putnam county? I would like to see a moritorium on apartment complexes.

Some of us don't appreciate having our home values drop because the "scenic hillsides" that were the highlight of the property to begin with have been covered in Richard Dyer's crappy houses. If they want subdivisions, that's fine. But they need to keep them in city limits and stop destroying what little forest and farm land we have left.

Is that so? Whoever said living like a bunch of sardines was a good thing? If that's the case, I'm outta here.

idk what they're referring to but I know when I bought my home about 30 years ago, I bought it because of its location. All of that open land has since been turned into Colonial Heights subdivision. I sold my home about 10 years ago and moved to the Buffalo Valley area. I just don't like living in somebody else's backyard.

Well if you don't want to live around anyone else sometimes that's what you have to do. Buffalo Valley would be a good place for that. Don't think you'll see any developments going up down there any time soon.

I was not referring to living like sardines as a good thing. I was merely pointing out that new construction shows a rebounding housing market which in turn equates to higher home values.(usually). I do not wish to have neighbors directly behind my property either. I did not have the money to buy several acres to avoid this in the future. I moved here because the area I lived in before grew rapidly and became commerialized. It will happen here also.
