Mission San Miguel

A Cooperative Neighborhood

The partners envision a neighborhood that is very active and inter-active, safe, secure, child friendly, multi-generational, to

some degree oriented to home schooling, with a strong faith component. Affordability of lots and finished homes within the

neighborhood allowing maximum pricing possibilities is an essential component of the developer

Mission making Progress in East Tallahassee

Here are some photos of the project site taken today. One of the most interesting characteristics about this community is its signage.

First home being built on a larger lot in the community. The minimum home size on a 3 acre lot is 4000 sq.ft. so this home must be that or larger. It is also an Aurthur Ruthenburg home. I hope I spelled his name correctly. A three acre site in this community costs $300,000.

I'll continue to update as often as I can.

Omg!! I have been trying to find this project. For some reason I thought it was called San Bonita, but when I went to research on the net I really had no luck. I have already seen advertisements on T.V. for this Mission San Miguel

Yea, it does!! To me it seems if one was to move there, one could expect no privacy. I think that the neighbors would be all up in the business.

Doesn't it also seem these people are seeking to build a little basket unto themselves to shut out the "undesirables" or the "dirty souls".

Kind of freaky sounding to me, but oh well different strokes for different folks. They would not even allow me to visit to the neighborhood much less live there. <_<

I'm sure this concept will be embraced by those here in Tally pretty warmly, however change the concept from a religious neighborhood to a nudist colony subdivision, all gay subdivision, pagan neighborhood or even an all Black, Hispanic or Asian community and folks in these parts would "bust a gut" screaming about it.

they probably would go crazy! but you know what is funny? We already developed a stereotype for this community, like it's the Village or something. (You mustn't wear red!) We Tallahasseeans should be happy we are getting another hood, and hopefully this will break ground for other cooperative neighborhoods

I wonder if this will be a Cooperative Neighborhood in it's true form. With the way the lots are priced, one would guess it isn't. Typically everyone would purchase a share of land from the coop, and pay their portion of the expense for the amount of time they live there. If they choose to sell, the members of the Coop must approve of the new buyer, releasing the current holder. This seems like fee simple real estate, typical of your average neighborhood. I wonder why they're calling it a cooperative. Only the common areas are shared.

Let me dredge this discussion up from a few months ago. Mission San Miguel will not be a cooperative in the legal sense and, I believe, has quit using the term.

Several folks I know, including one of my daughters and her husband, have bought lots in San Miguel. They are all Catholics and, while you don't have to be Catholic to live in the neighborhood, I think it would be an uncomfortable situation for a non-Catholic.

The streets intersect at small round abouts.

Small house under construction in the back of the neighborhood. From the FOR SALE signs posted throughout the neighborhood, very few lots remain. Most have SOLD signs on them.

Fancy, larger home still under construction.

Hmmm, if this was a Christian neighbourhood, instead of a specifically Catholic one, it might be of interest to me.

Assuming, of course, that I had $300,000. :whistling:

...and that I could live with deed restrictions. :sick:

^ i think that a Christian neighborhood would be a really cool idea. have a little village center with a church, coffee house, convenience store. resticting it to one denomination is kind of crummy...

Aren't most to all neighborhoods in our region Christian neighborhoods? I prefer to live around folks that are the same and different from me. I've learned a lot in the past from living in places like that.

So what you're saying is... you like a little diversity in your community?

Of course. I think what he's saying is he enjoys living around people from all walks... religious and non religious.

I don't really believe this neighborhood is being designed to be diverse and if that's what people want that buy there, that's fine by me.

Of course christians and catholics can be diverse, but often times in this region most folks just ASSume you are Protestant.

Yeah I like living in a diverse community: all races, religions and non-religious, different income levels, different ages, sexual orientations etc. Living around people who act, think and look just like me would get mighty boring to me....and of course I know not all think this way.
