The first gated community in Minnesota called Bearpath can be found in Eden Prairie. While other communities with a similar design may not have a gate, the concept is the same.
People tend to view their community as safe and private. Who wouldn’t want these things?
Some argue such people are elitists. True or not, who cares? I say it’s their money and their choice. Should they decide to live in a gated community, who’s to say they can’t do so? Who could they possibly be bothering by living in a gated community?
Some demand that everyone should live with an open-concept arrangement. Why? Each person has varying needs based on experiences and accomplishments. I can understand why a more well-known person would crave privacy at home.
Instead of this being an issue of the haves and have nots, perhaps it’s more of an issue of freedom of choice.
My answer is that there’s nothing wrong with gated communities in Minnesota.
