I'm a student and I live in a city but I want to live so much in a suburb, can't wait
Yeah I know at the same time I don't like it when super large areas are concreted over BUT also I like to have my space, my yard, etc. So there's really nothing that can be done short of stopping all immigration since that's what's contributing our population increase

Why do you suburbanites do it? (http://houston.craigslist.org/rnr/1832937711.html - broken link)

Title sound familiar?
A CL rant on top of this childish one? That's just pathetic.

And here we are watching it & replying...what's that they say about train wrecks?

Default Attention

'Sounds like the OP is only stirring the mud for attention, why post in multiple places? Just to get replies would be my answer. 'Must be lonely. I wonder where else this garbage bait was posted?

A building code that supposes a building might be around for longer than 25 years might help. Just a suggestion.
Its pretty sad when the best built houses in a place are Federal HUD homes for poor people. Solid brick.

I do it for my children, and for my wife, so they can have plenty of space to run around, and a safe neighborhood to do it in. I'd gladly commute any amount of time to provide for them the lifestyle that I think they deserve.

It's all a personal choice. Just like those that chose to not to commute, can give up on the big new house, buy older, and still have high quality neighbors, neighborhoods and schools if they wish. It can be done in the 300k category, any lower than that it gets tricky. Having more time at home and around the kids for some people translates to higher QOL for the entire family.

But having plenty of "space to run around, a safe neighborhood and good public schools" can be accomplished in the city as well. I get tired of hearing it can only be done in an MPC. Places like NOttingham Forest can be more Mayberry than Katy. The only thing that can't be replicated is the new tract home...unless you have a good size budget

Anyway, that's my broken record rant.
