I just recently heard this proposal and was frankly shocked and dismayed. I can't imagine that reducing already limited green space is considered to be a good or viable idea. As others have mentioned the area being proposed would not only remove a significant amount of Magruder Park (the extent of which depends on the proposed plan) but would also put new construction right in the line of possible flooding. Is no one in our local government paying any attention to the direction our climate is headed? It's not getting any drier in our region. Trees and green spaces are at a premium and should be protected, not viewed as expendable commodities. Come on local and county government, do a better job than this! Don't rush into this decision, use our space more wisely, and consider other proposals using existing already developed land not in a floodplain and not impacting a heavily used well loved park area.
