I pay taxes too and am a homeowner on this street but why let a good home like setting go to waste when it can be used for multiple purposes for the college students and staff. It would be a great loss to the JCC community if they had decided not to all the advantages of this lovely home. I'd rather have JCC students learning from this property in a science project or photography ect. than leave it vacant an no one taking advantage of the home, woods creek ect. Then there still would be no one paying taxes just saying.

It is regrettable that purchase of the property removes a very nice property from area tax rolls. On the other hand, high taxes and the current state of the economy may have prevented a sale to a private entity resulting in a gradual deterioration in value. Long-term, it appears that it could very well be a very good cost-effective purchase by the college.

$400,000 for more property to add to the "tax exempt roles", yet they raise tuition AGAIN! Something stinks!

Yes this is definitely necessary for JCC. It has a lot of potential for many uses esp. in the putting up people for lodging until they get established here in our area. The scenery and land is just beautiful with the wildlife. The water next too the "Moonfarm" itself when the fish our running is just a joy to sit and watch. This place gives a person a home like atmosphere. I think it would be a great asset to JCC and all they chose to take part in all it has to offer.

So the JCC advisors, who are all wealthy individuals, purchased a property with county taxpayer dollars, then will ask for this property to be taken off the tax rolls, so we the taxpayers are hit twice and then continuously to cover this unneeded property I would say no to this purchase. The property maybe close to the JCC campus but the board has no real plans to use the property so please don't buy it.

is this truly necessary for a community college? It's a wonder why our taxes are so high.
