I have lived in this area for almost 20 years and, like many others, have hoped for growth to be handled in a better way. For years we have watched our communities grow in small incremental pieces that do not contribute to the community as a whole. Many have called for growth to be better planned in larger increments allowing for necessary infrastructure and amenities. Finally, a group has come along to provide this type of thoughtful planning. I am very pleased that the board of supervisors recognized this opportunity and approved the project.
