Report: State spurred gated developments | PoconoRecord.com
Cost and government regulations spurred developers to build homes inside private communities, helping to explain the prevalence of these developments in the Poconos, a new state report shows.
At least 56,422 homes are within private community associations in Monroe and Pike counties.
There have been financial incentives for both municipalities and developers to make communities private, according to the report released by the Joint State Government Commission.
Thanks to Beanie Adolph for the link to this story that states what we have been saying for many years. Maybe somewhere a libertarian will read this and connect with the real world, however briefly, but perhaps long enough to realize that developers and local governments are making this happen--not consumers.
