NEWS AND RECORD
To the Editor
Last year the residents of Garden Lakes Estates were dismayed to learn Developers wanted to put a bank on the corner and a Walgreens on the other corner, at the entrance to our subdivision on New Garden Road.
The Zoning Board understood how we felt and voted in our favor. Since the Developer knew over 90% of the residents are against the construction, they withdrew their request.
We were therefore astonished recently to find the Developers were bringing this up before the Zoning Board again, with additions. This time, for reasons beyond our comprehension, they voted in favor of the Developers. The hearing before the Commissioners will be May 1st.
Lately it seems the Commissioners have been giving them what they ask for to the dismay of the residents and/or property owners nearby. Surely they haven’t
forgotten we voted for them to represent us? If they say ‘yes’ to the Developers who want to ruin the entrance to our subdivision, the other nice subdivisions along New Garden Road are likely to suffer the same fate.
I have been a resident of Garden Lakes Estates for over 45 years and hope it remains the way it is today.
