Living here in Gettysburg Pa can be fun, informative and yes a big pain in the butt. The chapel in the picture is causing a huge controversy here in Gettysburg. This building is built on a formerly useless rocky empty lot, a gentleman moved here from NH and erected a Civil War chapel, but it was a tent (temporary). During the winter the tent was destroyed and this is what was constructed in it's place. No big deal, one would think.
Problem, this is a permanent structure and the Gettysburg wants their pound of flesh, to the tune of $10,000+ in renovations, heck they want bathrooms installed and much more. There are really two things that stand out in this situation, one, the Gettysburg Boro councildoes not understand how many tourists this structure brings into town, tourists that spend money in town, and keep the town flush. They only see how they can flex there powerful muscles. Two, the owner of the structure should have done his due diligence and knew the rules beforehand. Don't get me wrong, I understand where the boro government is going with this, but when buying a home in a new town, know what the rules are.
All too often people move to a new state and fail to understand the differences in how states operate. Tax structures and collection are different, if the town is historic as is the case with Gettysburg Payou can pretty well expect building restrictions. Be prepared to deal with HARB (Historical Architectural Review Board), this is always fun. From my experience these people and boards start out with the best of intentions and then the power gets to their heads and it turns sour. I am curious how this is going to play out, but the lesson is do your homework, know what you are getting into.
If you are relocating to the Gettysburg Adams County area feel free to contact GettysburgGerry for assistance in knowing what you are getting into.
