A lot of NIMBY going on here... (presumably from transplants yourselves?)
Not at all. I'm sure most wouldn't want any neighborhood ruined.
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

yup. the traffic situation is absurd and there is no possible solution for this suburban area to take on more housing. and i doubt the new housing will lower prices/values materially.

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Good if you have toddlers.  Older kids wouldn't enjoy it so much

is there anything they can really do to stop the development besides making it into a park which I doubt anyone is going to want to pay for in woodmere?

bottom line is that there will probably be 200+ houses going up

Is there any community calendar where I can see community wide events that are planned?

I want to make an event in a few weeks but I don't want it to conflict with other events.
