Another big development with 1000 homes was supposed to be built, which would have shouldered some of the cost. But, economy tanked, it wasn't built, and we are left to cover the bonds they took out.

So, in the end, we got screwed. Houses 5 miles from us pay about $40 a month. We pay $150-175. It also killed property values in the neighborhood because no nobody wants to move here. For $120 extra a month, we could have financed building a basement when we built our home!
. That stinks!!
