Progress ?

Beyond the trees [ what were left ] is a development starting. The folks who live there are not happy about it. The developer wanted it re-zoned to fit more houses in = more money for the developer. All surrounding neighborhoods have opposed the re-zoning .. we went to City Hall. Got members we knew on the City Council to listen to 'why' it wasn't good for the area. No, we did not win in keeping the development out, but we did get the size of the lots and home to match what was already there. There will be a cut-through street ... at the end of our street. Joy ! I shall sit in the front yard with my speed gun {hair dryer} and a notebook jotting down tag numbers. Yes, got experience in doing this in Florida ... it worked in getting the cars to slow down. Progress isn't always progress ... depends on which side of the dollar you are holding. My camera can be intimidating .. will get tag numbers easily .. though I would much rather have a stash of stop sticks -- those things with nails in them the deflate tires quickly! If the trees above are removed, I'll go get my friend from years ago - we watched from our backyard as trees were removed "to make it easier to build" .... if they missed a tree - one of us would yell .."HEY, you missed one !" 1 PiP Wording makes no sense on the sign .. who is going to hunt or fish there? Waiting for some bullet holes to show up ..
