Too cool! I wish that they would not have voted to sell out though! Little places like those are soooo awesome to see and I hate to see corporate development takeover the waterfront... even though I am in the development business! We had a few trailer parks on the beach here in SoCal that were so neat and quaint, but I guess money speaks a little too much at times!

I grew up right near that town, got my first trespassing on private property going surfing there. It is amazing what a developer will do.

I had heard about this somewhere else and it seems like the town is going to put a lot of hurdles in front of the developer. This may cause it to fall apart according to the other article I read. If it does go through, most residents would see a nice return on their investments!

Darn nice return on an investment! I'd be counting that as my primary residence as of now... X capital gains...

CNN video on Road Runner showed a couple who spent $34,000 for a Double Wide with a little garden, 25 years ago and their return will be a little under $1.5 million. Who'd a thunk it!
