You cannot.  Besides, there is no money in farming right now.  I think you'll start seeing farmers that are heavily leveraged go tits up in the next year or two.  I plan on doing some auctions and buying another late model machine cheap.  Got my eye on a nice low hours 120 horse JD cab with FWA.

Gonna be a lot of green machine on the block shortly.

Crop prices are depressed and inputs have doubled in the past year.

Frenchtown is stupid.

I think this is a case where Frenchtown would lose in court.

You have to let a property owner get SOME use from their land.

It wouldn't be hard to argue the land can't be used the way it is zoned now.

The developer should have asked for contract zoning. That way the developer can develop the way he says he is going to and the twp can have some assurance that he will follow his sales pitch. Theres two sides to every coin but Frenchtown does have a well deserved reputation of crapping in their food dish when it comes to economic development. As few times as someone tries to bring a development of this size to our county everyone should bend over backwards to make it happen. Frenchtown has never had that mindset. They have gotten lucky a few times but it was never because they tried to make it happen.

Sounds like Petersburg (city).  Storefront's empty, faced with a multi-million dollar water upgrade and no money.  Oh well, just another Deefield ghost town in the making.  Poor citizens in P'Burg are taxed to death by ineffectual city government.

Read that Sears is contemplating bankruptcy and has retained a consulting outfit to expedite that.  Kind of surprised they are still in business today.  read they are bleeding badly.

Frenchtown killed the Custer airport expansion   
Yet let Telegraph overbuild without creating any access roads.   

And people wonder why developers complain about "regulations" killing things... 

we'll be lucky if they ever decide to do Fermi III  - job wise

Nike base acreage will sit abandoned and collect more trash it seems...
and what "houses" isn't that area full of Trailer parks?

Fnd what "houses" isn't that area full of Trailer parks?

Yes Telegraph and Newport Road to the east have mobile home parks but the west side of Newport has some houses down there.

I myself am in a mobile home and feel quite comfortable in it.

Maybe Frenchtown is holding out for another trailer park to hardly pay taxes but put even more demands for government services.

I'm sure you are.  There are some inherent issue with mobile homes however.  The big one is the real estate tax issue and how they impact local services and how those services are paid for.  The other issue is value.  Mobile homes, unlike brick and mortar real estate don't appreciate, they depreciate.  In my view, it's a bad investment.

bad investment or not this is our home and has been for over 20 years now and will continue to be so.  There are times in our lives when maybe we can't get what we want but trust me when I say, I am very grateful to have a roof over my head even if it is a mobile home.  I know a lot of people (not saying you by any means) love the terminology "trailer trash" and while that MAY be in a lot of cases, there are a LOT of mobile home parks that are very well managed, kept up, and you can tell people care about where they live.
