It's starting to pinch for those owning raw land they intended to turn into tract mansions

For sale. Not lots. Raw land.

Top picture is Hwy E in North Prairie. Stone's throw from the broad and depressingly empty vistas of Broadlands, a golf course development with too few golfers and too few buyers for oversized/overpriced houses.

Bottom photo is three miles west of Waukesha City limits on Hwy 18, at the Intersection of Brandy Brook Road. A stone's throw from the green and depressingly empty vistas of Brandy Brook, a golf course subdivision, with too few golfers and too few buyers of oversized/overpriced houses.

Ah, the sweet smell of farmland about to return to being just that...farmland.

Won't be needing any Lake Michigan water out here.

About Me

My photo
Of the biblical allotment of three score and ten I have lived only three of them more than a bicycle ride from one of the Great Lakes. I grew up ten blocks from Lake Erie in the (once Irish/Italian ghetto, now newly-hip) "Near West Side" of Cleveland. I can still cycle to the Milwaukee lakefront in an hour and a half; but, a round-trip has always been more than I would (noror ever did) attempt. -0- I'm a "...somewhat combative pacifist and fairly cooperative anarchist," after the example of Grace Paley (1922-2007). -0- I'm always cheerful when I pay my taxes (having refused--when necessary--to pay that portion of them dedicated to war). -0- And I always, always vote.
