Town of Garner Votes To Approve Development on Biologically Rich and Diverse Land

Despite months of trying by local citizens to stop or lessen the impact of a proposed development on neighboring property, the Garner Town Council tonight approved what will destroy a very biologically diverse piece of land.  It is a shame that the building of 41 houses has been found more important than protecting a wonderfully diverse area that would have made excellent park land and green space.

The town is intent on following a bad plan that will essentially do away with most green space in the north part of Garner.  Their idea of green space is a patch of grass in a park and call this progress.  I guess anything that adds to the tax coffers takes precedence over all.  There is apparently not much concern for protection of important wildlife areas.

I have never been so disgusted with politics and the Town of Garner as I am right now and I think it is time to find a new place to live.
The lack of tree protection for existing developed properties is not required ILO favoring new development.   If the tree on your property is damaged...oh well.  Are you kidding me!!!!

Say good-bye to natural beauty.

There was a song that had a sentence about paving paradise and putting up a parking lot......well this is paving paradise to put up a housing development.

The color and song and delights of nature will be replaced by traffic noise and litter.
