In Reply to: 20 Years Tomorrow, Kinda Bummed. posted by big a on January 19, 2014 at 16:12:36:

Didn't grow up on a farm, but the house I grew up in is only 12 or so miles away from me. We lived in my great Grandma's old house, right next door to my Great Uncle, with my Grandma's house and property within walking distance right behind us. Our old house is still standing, but the woods across the street is now a grocery store, 4 houses up the hill they took the fields and woods I played and hunted in turned it into an elementary school. The properties where my Great Uncle's place, my Grandma's place, and another neighbors places all stood are now a huge mini-storage facility. Unfortunately the way the city zoned things and let all the commercial crap, but especially the school, be built, it dropped the value of the land dramatically over what it is in other areas. Basically with the school there, two convenience stores, a drug store, a tire store, a fast food place, etc, etc, etc, the uses for the property, beyond residential, are very limited. Thing is nobody wants to live with all of that crap around them, so selling residential has been impossible....and selling commercial isn't hitting on much either because of the city's zoning....Now the old house, and Dad's old shop, are both sitting there in disrepair because no one has the money to fix it up,making things just that much more impossible when it comes to selling......Makes me sick every time I drive by the old place.....
