Armour Hills Homeowner Rage
I just got a horrific flier on my door saying that with 1.5 days of feedback request and 43 responses the Armour Hills Homes Association decided to support a street car running parallel to the trolly track.
This is about as bogus of a representation/vote as the street car vote itself was. I demand that you rescind that recommendation until you get proper vetting from the home owners.
What you are advocating is that the street car run parallel to the trolley trail. Besides the fact that the street car is a complete waste of money, this is the same homeowners association that, without community support, made its displeasure known about a WalMart grocery store because of "safety" reasons and because you think a large corporation would not fit in our community, yet you show no comparable outrage to Whole Foods. Please tell me and the entire homeowners association how safety is compromised by traffic crossing a little used portion of the trolley trail but it is not compromised by having 100 ton vehicles running in parallel, 100 feet away from the most heavily used stretch of the trolley trail?
The fact is this home owners association is out of control with its recommendations and support. It is out of control with its imperial sense of democracy and community feedback. It is out of control with its very left of center, knee jerk reactions and it cannot even see how their arguments in support of one recommendation directly contradict their opposition to another recommendation.
