Didn't deflect.

It's an unknown as appraisals/valuations are based on comps. And there have been very few comps since the caps and no comps based upon redistricting because it hasn't happened yet. And as a result who knows. Pure speculation, realtor hype. If one were such a psychic or realtor, one would have moved to a different subdivision when had the chance. Therefore speculation also known as propaganda.

If there are impacts are they short term (less than 7 years) or long term (longer than 7 years)?

A $60K decrease in the Cuthbertson area would represent how much of decline? How does that compare to 2010 values. How does it compare to 2007 values. Is it correlation or causation...

"Selfish attitude"? "A vast minority"?

Wait, wait $60k is involved.



The propaganda echo chamber is on full blast. Even more so now with PTO's deciding without votes, polling, surveys that they are against redistricting via newsletters. Hear the unchallenged FB community roar about numbers disproved on this thread and 2009 BoE redistricting goals quoted as fact by current BoE members only again to be contradicted here even before they were used. If that every happened in a real public or private company board meeting they would have been confronted and corrected immediately. Not the political circus that went on last Thursday because one adult wasn't there.

Copy, paste every FB # analysis or crazy conspiracy theories from whatever HOA or Angry Dad you want over here. And myself and others can objectively analyze them and point out the errors, weaknesses and usually tear them to shreds. Just post them back for the snowflake counting crowd, because if they can't see the forest through the trees, they obviously can't see above an inch of snow.
sorry Sunshine, but there is plenty of excellent analysis that can't be disputed or justified. A simple example, someone asked earlier why, if Parkwood is under capacity, are they currently using unheated trailers. That question wad dodged. Another example is the lame explanation by Webb as to why the analysis was only 5 years. I could go on and on but don't worry the truth will come to light. In Ellis' own words, "we were directed by the BOE to fill empty seats".

Not mention Mckibben himself questioning redistricting.

I find it funny that you continually call out FB posts. Are you friends with any of the BOE members on FB? At least a couple of them, cough cough cupcake, have really embarrassed themselves. But you won't talk about that because it doesn't fit your agenda.

While I did not agree with that outburst at least the person who mouthed those words actually educated themselves regarding the very words used by Mr. Stewart over a year ago to Luan Ingram who was the UCPS Communications Director. Karma is a b----.

Thanks to the person on an earlier post that provided us with the background information behind the "cupcake" remark. The Dichotomy of Suck It Up Cupcake » The Village Scribe

Just wait until next year for the AK, South Meck, Providence, Butler fight...

People are already prepping for that one.

Houses (comps) on street and working on out to neighborhood homes.

Below copied from Realtor.com:

To decide what to pay for a home (or what to sell yours for) it helps to look at comps – the recent selling prices of nearby homes that are of a similar size, age and condition. Be sure to look for homes very near to yours, not similar homes in different neighborhoods. Everything in the area – from proximity to shopping, quality of schools, crime rate and general neighborhood upkeep – figure into the market value of any given home.

What Can Negatively Affect House Values in My Area?

Plenty of things can lower home values in any given neighborhood:

Condition of the houses. Do your neighbors maintain their homes well, or are their lawns overgrown with weeds and their yards full of junk cars and decrepit appliances?

Condition of the streets. Does your city/county/homeowners association maintain your streets well, or are they pocked with potholes? Do they drain well during spring rains? Are they plowed frequently enough in the winter? Are there sidewalks or bike paths?

Crime. How does crime in your neighborhood stack up with rates around the city? Are the police responsive to problems? Do you have a Neighborhood Watch in place, showing that neighbors work together and take crime seriously?

Schools. How are test scores in the schools where your neighborhood’s kids go? (Remember, with constant school redistricting, sometimes the school around the corner is NOT the one where kids in your area go; they may have to go to another school.) Are the schools overcrowded? Are they old and in need of repair or expansion or updating? Are there discipline problems?

Zoning. Will all the neighborhood streets remain quiet, or does the city or county have plans to widen streets to accommodate more traffic – using your neighborhood as a path from one side of town to another? Will that block of decrepit homes nearby be redeveloped into pretty new houses, or will your city put a strip mall or convention center or low-income apartments there?

And you don't have to take my word for it. Ask your builder why it cost so much to build your house in your community? Their answer: because the property value is higher there. Why? Answer: because the county charges more in a desired area.. Desired you ask? Answer: they know the schools are why people want to live in certain areas. Just a fact and that's Nation wide not just here in union county. Being from NY and this might just give my age away but if anyone can remember Jamaica High in NY you know the history there it wasn't a school you wanted your children to go to. It's since then been shut down. Let's just ask everyone a simple question. And think quick on your answer. If you had a choice regardless of money. Would you go to Harvard university or Michigan community college ? And why? On your answer.
