lake harmony: Real Estate Tax Reassessment Relief? - 06/11/08 10:06 AM
Maybe some relief from Tax Assessment Issue
Just read an article in the June edition of The Pennsylvania REALTOR®  about two companion pieces of legislation being taken through the process in the State Legislature.  The House version was introduced by Rep Tim Seip of Schuylkill County (HB 1438 and 1439) and the Senate version was introduced by Sen James Rhoades also of Schulykill County (SB 1247 and 1258).
The purpose of the Bills is to close the loophole in current law which is being  exploited by school districts in the State (including Jim Thorpe School District right here in Carbon County) … (2 comments)

lake harmony: Emergency Services Banquet - 05/08/08 04:01 PM
The May 10 dinner, music and dance being held at the Galleria at The Resort at Split Rock is fast approaching.  While this is the first time such an event is being held here we have gotten over 250 attendees willing to have a great evening at a reasonable price with the chance to say THANK YOU to people who put their lives on the line every day to protect their fellow citizens (and without compensation).  If this sounds a litle sarcastic, it is.  We should have 500 or more attending given the population of the area.  I throw this out to … (0 comments)

lake harmony: More Gambling Facilities destined for the Pocono area - 05/04/08 01:07 PM
Seems as if at least one new casino may be coming to the Pocono Mountain area.  The next round of license hearings were held in May.  There are only three applicants for the two Resort or Class 3 licenses available.  The three are Fernwood Resort in Monroe County, The Resort at Split Rock in Carbon County and the Valley Forge Convention Center.  The license would allow the successful applicants to have a facility with up to 500 slot machines (as opposed to the up to 5,000 permitted in the other two types of licenses).
At the May hearing held at the Kidder … (0 comments)

lake harmony: Lake Harmony Growth - 03/22/08 08:49 AM
I have posted a market report on growth in Carbon County and it would follow that this area should also be experiencing similar soaring grwoth.  However, while there is some new construction in progress at Big Boulder & Jack Frost Mountain Ski areas as well as the golf course at Split Rock it is not actually even close to booming.  Many more units are planned at these locations but the overall market slow-down seems to be hitting here hard.  New unit sales are way off and even open houses at the locations do not seem to attract more than the occaisional passer though.  … (0 comments)
