Reader says This town is on the path of no return

Reader says pro-development crowd uses calls of “racism” to get its way

those of us opposed to overdevelopment are a mixed lot. You would know this if you have been at the Village meetings and part of the debate. The charge of racism is completely off base.

Reader calls Fair Share Housing a bully

Fair Share Housing will bully their way as they know nobody will bother to fight them. It takes balls to stand up and this VC and the village in general is full of lightweights who are more concerned with leaf collection than the long term livability in this place. I would rather see us risk […]

Reader says Affordable housing can be beneficial to a handful of people but can be devastating to so many more

This affordability thing is one of the most perverted things I have come across.. How can an organization such as Fair Share housing have so much leverage in dictating their agenda.
