Glad they're leaving my area! Don't have to worry about more housing developments, and all the infrastructure they require.

I still like the "rural living" here in this part of NJ, even with the costs. I only have to drive 15 minutes to work... before they move to the Gulf Coast :mad:

I couldn't agree with you more! Every state that is easy with the handouts does not lose people. Between the Liberals and Labor Unions, everyone is expecting a free ride. Doesn't happen out in the country much. Local churches give some free stuff, but they also try and find them jobs, so they don't tend to stay long? That "W" word gets them every time?

Many X-urbanites are traveling the extra few miles on the interstates and moving to the larger PA cities just across the Delaware. NJ has COAH laws that make it illegal to omit affordable housing in geographical areas like the rural counties. Our Gobblenator, Christie, was just overridden by the state SCONJ (not to be confused w/ SCOTUS) that said his maneuvers to bypass the law wouldn't stand. Trouble with COAH is the wealthy communities in the geographical areas can buy their way out of their affordable obligations. Towns like Phillipsburg have changed forever because they took such money and let places in Somerset County off the hook. Woodn'coal, how's the flavor of Newton changed in the past 15 years?

Woodn'coal, do you know if Newton took any COAH buyout monies from other counties like Phillipsburg did?
