    Gotta love that word reinvent. The young people in the family think this is perfectly fine as a place to live, eat, shop, and go to the DR is all they think about. Meanwhile, those of us who are older and not planning to live in these areas (and don’t plan to visit) wish all of them the best. No one knows our plans, but the baby boomers will have a great time living as we used to as they can’t use up all of the land at once.

    Now that the county has paid $17 million for this piece of property what is really going to be done with the land?

    Any idea what residential and light industrial development options are going to be?
