I would like to say that a person's financial means has nothing to do with a person's character or actions. I know some financially secure people I would be most uncomfortable being around any length of time and some who are down on there luck finacially who I enjoy being around. A person's actions and character speak louder to me than their checkbook. So what if someone desires an RV to live full time or on the weekends. So what if someone has a
has a massive fulltime or part time home in CRR. I have been lucky enough to make friends with someone in CRR who has recently experienced a financial downturn due to the economy. Remember ....you never know when the table will turn on you financially. For the most part.....everyone in CRR that I have met has been very kind and interesting to me. Also, We looked at RVs in CRR before purchased our home.
Very well said. I can see you are a very kind person and you are correct. People can have money one day and then the next day it is gone. I have been in both situations but doesn't change me from being a nice person. Hopefully I can join township real soon.

Here's another board with an unfortunate title. The way it's going over here it can only get worse. I wonder if it would be any different if somebody started a board and called it something like - "Join Us at Coosawatee, It's Wonderful".

Probably not, and CRR is doomed as the dues have gotten so high that the whole thing will soon collapse of its own weight.

Then the fat cats and insiders divide the spoils among themselves for fire sale prices, and then bring in corporate interests from ATL to turn in into their own private play pen.

Clean water, it's the new oil. Better than oil though because you can't drink oil... Fat cats will own all the land along the river so they can pump out all the water they want. There's always a reason why common people are pushed aside, and there's many ways to get them out of the way.

like any community this large there will be some issues, but of the over 2800 residents, most are happy with living there and are pleased with what they get for the dues they pay.

There are some deals on lots but like always one needs to look at the whole picture. Cheap lots may be behind in taxes or dues or unbuildable or at least undesirable. New rulles to allow adjoining lots to be purchased and combined and that should / will help improve the financial status of the CRR and allow mor greenspace. The big builder owned lawsuite has been resolved and the financial status of CRR is strong and will be improving.

CRR offers Great scenic woods, nice facilities, gated community close to nature but still close to town...... pretty good in my mind for a full time or part time home!

RV lots are also availabe and have their own set of issues.

I Love living in the CRR!

How do you know most people are happy in CRRA? Did you call and ask them? How can you feel we are strong financially when we are owed 4.4 million dollars which is equal to 1 years revenue. The agreement with Flint Timber is not scheduled to go before the judge until April for a review of the negotiations. And the $50,000 that we were told Flint Timber was to pay the first of January, has not been paid as of around the 2nd wk of Jan. Ron Bowman, chief operating officer said they had not paid.

But to answer the question of the thread, NO, CRRA for the most part is not a dump. Yes, there are some areas that need improvement and cleanup.

Management and the BOD could use the most cleanup. Until then CRRA will remain a corrupt dump. Investors and homeowners should not buy here for now.

To clarify when I say "this place" I refer to the physical environment, not the political one. Politically you are spot on.

2nd that! Here for five years and it is nothing like what is written on the other thread. Never have had a bad experience when I have called about a concern or needed help. Coming up from Atlanta area dues are a bargain. Neighbors are not to close but are neighborly. We abide by rules and understand them to be a necessity for a community. Learned in my youth some people just can't find joy unless it is at the expense of someone else.
Life is wonderful in these mountains.

When they double or triple the dues just to keep up with putting bandaids on issues. will you still feel the same way? Do you even realize what things NEED to be done that are not? Not just on your street but all over CCR.

Correct for the most part. There will always be a few crazies and there is nothing that can be done about that.

What will disappear are the owners who know what they're talking about and are so fed up with the way their community is run that they feel compelled to post their feelings on this and similar websites.

We just purchased a home in Coosawattee and enjoy being in the resort very much because of the location. However,the problems you have with the people in the office regarding something as simple as a ditch needing to be cleaned out because of drainage problems or getting a permit to pour a slab or driveway is a nighmare! The lady in the roads & mainetance office at Coosawattee comes with a BIG attitude and she is as helpful as a run over snake! She is also untruthful person. Beware! The fees are constantly going up and you are charged for everything! It appears Coosawattee is trying to discourage growth of any kind. I am not sure we would buy in Coosawattee if we had it to do over again. Especially after our experience with the woman in the roads and maintenance office. I would recommend Coosawatte only if you can't find a place elsewhere in Gilmer County.
You seem to have a problem with a person at the resort, and a problem affording what you bought . You need to read a book : those that can will and those that cant bitch.

Have you noticed the cost of good bacon lately? How about decent steak? Then think how much your fuel has gone up. I've lived here for over 10 years. I expected my dues to go. I am not involved in running this community and applaude anyone willing to volunteer their time. I have not had any complaints with paid or volunteer staff. I treat them as I would want to be treated. I want a decent safe community.
