At this point, their legal troubles are over. There's not enough people moving there. They haven't built new houses in many years, only 1/4 of the allowed houses are built so far.

I can't speak to the community at large, but I have a friend living there who's only in it for the חלק שמונה. He's planning on leaving as soon as he's able.

I think a Waterbury community was built on this. What's happening there now?

No chance this ever happens for too many reasons to write.

There's an advantage there for that? Where can one find out more?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

What is Chelek Shmoneh? Some extra cash for moving in to bolster the community?

If you don't know, you probably shouldn't know. Ignorance is bliss.

Yeah, there's plenty of people who rent for a few years. They aren't really part of the new development though, they're usually in rentals throughout the main part of town.

For sure. Up there it's a lot easier to get onto the list. Once you're there for a certain amount of time, you can transfer to anywhere else in the State and the benefits come along with you.

They "won" but they are not fully over the fallout from the legal problems.
They didn't get C of Os on the houses they built until relatively recently. They are selling houses as quickly as they become available.
It's hard to build new homes when the developer is behind bars.

One indication that they are well established is that they stopped accepting outside kids to their school, something they had been allowing to fill up their classes.

You can't really compare Tampa to Bloomingburg, SI, JC etc, as they all rely on NY's Jewish infrastructure. SI on BP, Bloomingburg on KJ and JC on Williamsburg. Tampa is a 4 hour drive from Miami, and even Miami lacks the facilities to accommodate a large new chassidish community. This is an undertaking on a whole new level.

Iím not an accountant and I know nothing about taxes, but I wonder if people with established businesses in the tristate will open a 2nd branch in Tampa and be able to make that their main headquarters. Or atleast buy a second house and live there half the time
