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.
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.
