I am steamed!
The township I live in has basically sold out - everything - to developers.
They have started clearing land to put in enough houses to double the number we already have - that's the plan - to double the number of houses in our township over the next 5 years.
They have already proven - at least some of them - that they do not deserve to be here; they don't follow the rules, and just do whatever the hell they want - clear cut during nesting season, lie, manipulate, etc.
The largest of the bunch bought land in the town across the lake from us and immediately started demanding that the existing homeowners around his development area clean up their homes; paint, etc, etc. The entire town has to spend money to meet his citiot criteria.
AND NOW the township has sent us all a notice that WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO PAY MORE - A LOT MORE - for our water to cover the cost of improvements needed because of the development projects.
Excuse me???????????? We ALREADY pay more than twice what they pay all around us. Three times some areas.
And WE'RE supposed to bear the costs of so called improvements we don't want, weren't given a choice about, and which are destroying our environment and way of life? There is NO benefit to us to have a huge influx of citiots. They don't buy - or hire - locally. All we get out of the deal is more citiots, more traffic, more noise & more aggravation - oh and less trees, less view & less of everything we moved here for. Many of us - the locals - are already talking about moving further north.
I do not have the time or energy to get involved in local politics - but I don't see how I can avoid it at this point - I am far too angry to keep my mouth shut and stay out of it. What a crock!
