Development must be stopped

"Enough is enough!" this should be the Village motto, not "Naturally Refreshed." Our Mayer and Council are selling us out.

“Enough is enough!” this should be the Village motto, not “Naturally Refreshed.” Our Mayer and Council are selling us out. They are deliberately ignoring the wishes of the residents and addressing an agenda that appears all too suspicious.

Who is going to take a stand and stop the destruction of the Village? A developer has somehow, although this is the worst kept secret in the Village, convinced our Mayor and Council to change the OCP to allow the destruction of forest and natural habitat so that a few can make a lot of money at our expense.

This is not about tax revenue or the need to grow. We don’t have to lose our village status to appease a select few self-centered individuals (yes, you know who you are).

No one in the populace of Harrison Hot Springs wants to see the destruction of the forest. No one wants more houses. No one wants more traffic year round. So, to our Mayor and Council…stop it now! Quit selling us out to a developer who has no interest in preserving our “Naturally Refreshed” location.

Why are we as citizens allowing this to happen? We need to voice our opinion and save our Village. Once development starts there will be no stopping it. This makes me sick, and I know I am not the only one who feels this way. You took an oath to protect the interests of the Village, Mayor and Council, so live up to it or leave office!
