He told me that the local shaliach is helping him out a lot

The Tampa shliach the S. Pete Shliach or the Pasco shliach?

There are several Shluchim I know in the area. A few are personal friends.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

There's a Chabad Rabbi at Young Israel of Tampa as well.

Sounds very interesting! Thanks for the update! Please post more info as you get them.
Whether it works or not is to be seen but I love seeing people trying to get out of the Sodomite NYC. About time

Sounds interesting, but why start something new so far away from south Miami where there is already a large jewish infrastructure, wouldn't it be easier to just work around and near whats already built up?

I'm sure real estate is cheaper further away from Miami.
Is there a clever way to solicit likes without sounding like a classless wannabee?

Sounds like the county here really wants them + Miami has a clown govt + Constiction cost, taxes & regulations are outrageous.  +
I'm sure real estate is cheaper further away from Miami.

Curious if it's also to keep things separate?

A few years back, someone tried building a community off of Ives Dairy in Aventura. The expenses were too great, and it's harder to draw people into a new place when there are so many other options nearby.

There are many benefits to building a chassidishe community far from South FL, but the biggest one is spiritual. It's not easy to keep a community from being exposed to "unholy influences" down here. If you're trying to build a somewhat insular frum kehillah, Pasco is probably a safer bet.

Not that it would make a difference as this community will not happen regardless, but to me geographically, DeSoto County makes more sense. It's easier to keep things insular when an area is less populated.

People need to make money, too. Gotta have a balance.

I don't understand why anyone would rush to give a deposit. What do you lose by not giving one and only putting down money once there are enough people? It's not like you'll lose your chance.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I also heard these stuff but with zero information, which makes me question is it true or not.
Either case I'm leaning more and more towards waiting a few months and see what happens, as I probably got nothing to lose and everything to gain
