Letter to the Editor: Stop Canyon Springs
October 28, 2014
Hardly anyone is clamoring for another 185 units in Glenshire except maybe for some greedy developers and jaded investors. The neighborhood doesn't need it, kids don't need it, wildlife doesn't need it and the future doesn't need it.
It means congestion, pollution, degradation of air quality, traffic issues, a drain on water and energy resources, inadequate support for emergency services and a debasement of quality of life issues.
Why are we here if not for the lifestyle offered by this community? Stand up, speak out, take the lead. Tell the Town Council what you believe. The future we plan for ourselves and our children is dependent on the actions we take today.
