Apologies the two consecutive posts on this subject, but this annoys me.
After concluding that "Leave the Zone Alone" wasn't an effective enough rhyme, The Community has regrouped following their most recent defeat and introduced new yard signs reading "Less Dense Makes Sense". I completely concur with the sentiment, though probably not with the exact meaning that was intended.
The implication of the group's non-functional URL (www.keepsevenoaksevanswoodgreen.org) that this development would somehow endanger the area's "greenness" is absurd. I myself reside in this neighborhood, and I can tell you with some certainty it has an abundance of large trees. I am reminded of this fact every time there is rain/snow/wind and a felled tree knocks my power out for days at a time.
While the property may indeed be surrounded by some older trees, most of it is covered with an ugly disused school, an unkempt sports field and the most non-green thing of all: a surface parking lot.
Let's all chill out and worry about real issues that we can all agree on, like how City Place sucks. Everyone say it with me now: we're not gonna protest, we're not gonna protest...
