Are you ready for 12,000 new homes in the Eagle foothills? I'm sure our realtors are! (And read the reader comments)

Or how about the gargantuan homes that are sprouting up on our foothills. But hey, it's the American dream for us to be able to put our homes wherever the hell we please, right?

I'm pretty pro-developement, but are this many large homes wise in a slowing market. Will they sale or sit idle? seems like this should be thought through a little more

Why pro-development?

Honest question.

(I don't necessarily buy into the 'it stimulates the economy' argument, either).

Mainly because i like the big city. I just want Boise to grow smart, I'm kind of disapointed in sprawl in the foothills, i think there is plenty of room in the desert, but i can't have my cake and eat it too. I'd also like to see development with a little more character, not just CBH subs, but here again that comes across a little fickle.

You may want to check in with a good dermatologist. It sounds like you have a lot of growths.
