  • You build it and not only will we tax the new homeowner into foreclosure, the city of Gainesville won’t be leaving the “light on for you.”

    Welcome to the overtaxed, “I got mine, you can keep dreaming,” Alachua Communist’ County.

  • It’s not only a waste but will be counterproductive by encouraging more poverty — if the housing is subsidized RENTALS. That’s the exact same pattern we’ve been thru the last 75 years already. Instead, there needs to be owner-occupied, single adults (no couples or families) small floorplan, HOA-self-governed with security gated screened visitor access housing. The city and county LOVE forcing poor folks to shack up and have babies and deadbeat dads filling out jails. It keeps their campaign donors busy.
