Hey doesn't it now seem like a no brainer that this is not the time to be even contemplating building on this land??? Mr Hawkins acknowledged that more development uphill from our neighborhood is only going to cause more runoff and more problems on a sewer system that is already insufficient. It seems like that is just common sense at this point.
