OK to build without infrastructure?

After reading about the possible development at Lake Goodwin, I have to respond.

Doesn’t one have to question why a developer can build 6,000 homes and a possible college without any water or sewers? Is the developer going to tax the water system as well? How are they going to handle all the sewage?

Does anyone realize that if you buy a house with a questionable water well, that the county/developer doesn’t care? I can tell you for a fact; we live in such an area.

If anyone is buying a house on a well, I suggest you get a guarantee from the developer or builder stating that you won’t run out of water – which, of course, won’t happen. You can’t sue because they’ve established limited liability corporations, which means you won’t get much satisfaction.
