Yes…but cross-border travel under constantly changing Covid-rules will pose major challenges to younger couples wanting to start families no knowing if mikvah is readily accessible.

CS: Thank you so much for the kind offer but we have no interest in perpetuating the suffering of the indigenous peoples of Montana by relocating to your Tepee.

Ymribiat, you are touching on a sore topic here!
Most of the frum residents of Rockland are pretty upset by the construction going on here. The problem is that people who come in from out-of-town, but property here, and bribe the local officials to allow them to build multifamily dwellings.
Most of the time, before a multifamily house is built, there is a hearing in Town Hall before the builder gets permission to build. Its happened so many times that the entire neighborhood comes to the meeting to protest, and the permit is given anyway.
I personally know someone who attended such a meeting. The building was going to take place in her neighborhood; she and all her neighbors attended the meeting and howled in protest. Afterward, this person approached a town official privately and commented, “but if they pay you enough money, they’ll get the permit. Right?” The reply was, “uhh… right”.December 14, 2021 3:29 pm at 3:29 pm #2041690
@GH, the tepee belongs to my Native Lawyer, who invited me to use anytime I want to [ 100% true] She is part Navajo part Kootenai, but she married a Crow hence the Tepee in Ft PeckDecember 14, 2021 4:07 pm at 4:07 pm #2041727yehudis21Participant

Goldilocks > Most of the frum residents of Rockland are pretty upset by the construction going on here.
let’s look halakhically: new construction should not ruin other residents, but can compensate for damage. Presumably, this is what town clerk is doing – developers pays for whatever damage he does to the town (what is it?). Really bad damage I can think of – building houses that will increase crime. Other than that – there will be more traffic? Think of all people who need housing and possibly of people who want to earn money building a house. You have to have a serious reason to limit them.
At the end, those woh feel strongly about this should start their own town, like new Square, and control what they want to do as a community.December 15, 2021 12:39 am at 12:39 am #2041823
