I'm sure you have poured
over tons of mail about the proposed Four
seasons sight, I hope that
every letter helps to inform you a little more on all
the information that should
be taken into account. I hope that my letter
will be one that is informative
and helpful as well. I was in attendance
at the meeting on the 27th
about the proposed building sight. I walked
in, ready to fight to the
end, got my vote No sticker and found a place to
stand. I was quick to learn
that there is alot of information and
demographic ideals I had
never taken into account.
I am not a local to the shore
but I am definitely a Marylander having
lived in Frederick, Carroll,
Anne Arundel, Wicomico and Queen Anne's
counties. I have seen how
building can totally reshape the landscape and
the people of a given area.
The biggest issue that I
had never taken into account is the lack of
housing for the elderly
whether it is assisted living or not. I feel
strongly that we should
move towards providing this type of housing so
that local people do not
have to leave once they require special
housing. It also became
very apparent that this issue was debated by a well
educated, well imbursed
and non local group vs. mostly blue collar local
folk. It seemed as though
the people that love this special place didn't
have a chance against the
It sickened me to here Montgomery
county residents at the microphone
telling us why we should
let them move here and make our home more like
there's. Have any
of you ever been to Montgomery Village in
Is this what we want Kent
Island to look like? Every square foot of land
covered with town houses
and condos? 293 acres minus 83 acres of forest
minus 25 acres unused land
= 185 acres approximately.....hhhhhmmmm 185
acres divided by 1350 dwellings
= 0.137 acres per dwelling! Now I
realize that some of the
buildings are multi family but, is this the kind of
intense growth we want?
Mr. O'Donnell I use to live
in the house next to yours so I think I can
make this figure hit home
for you. 0.137 acres per dwelling would be the
same as 3.7 dwellings in
Have you driven thru the
traffic circle at Queen's landing on a Saturday
in July? I do not care what
study has been done common sense tells us
that this will be a nightmare!
It will be like driving in Glen Burnie!
The woman that got up to
defend her right to do what she wanted with her
land told us that she could
not farm the land because it had become
gridlocked with houses.
This is her idea of an solution to that problem?
There is alot of farmland
not in use on Kent Island, are we doing
anything to improve conditions
for farmers? I think that we should or else this
is going to keep happening.
The dollar is very powerful!
We love this place we call
Our Home, we love it because it is special,
unlike any other place.
As you drive home look out
the window.....that is why you love this
