Reader says There has been disrespectful dialogue on both sides of this discussion, so neither side has any right to point fingers.

When most of Valley’s neighbors bought their houses, there was a Master Plan in place that stated that Valley would not be able to do what they are trying to do now. Valley’s treatment of its neighbors has been deplorable and anyone who so much as raised a question about their plans was dismissed as an ignorant NIMBY.

The process that lead to that Master Plan amendment was so seriously flawed that we now have to do the whole thing over again. Valley tried to cram their plan though on private, back room deals (much like what we’re seeing now with the current proposed developments in the CBD) and by shutting its opponents out of public meetings.

The assumption that you know better than Valley’s opponents about “the best interests of the Village” is consistent with the arrogant and dismissive attitude that Valley has had towards its neighbors for years. Or, as you refer to them, “you people.”

There has been disrespectful dialogue on both sides of this discussion, so neither side has any right to point fingers.
