RV city: Cure may be worse than disease

March 21, 2013

This letter may be late to the party, but I just read all the negative letters about the proposed RV park near Love Creek. I have traveled parts of the East Coast and Canada by RV and have stayed at some pretty amazing and beautiful campgrounds. The plans for this one look like a great use of space and a boon to tourism.

But that doesn't really matter. What would you rather see on the site? An attractive campground that retains trees and makes itself beautiful, provides well-managed water access and enhances the environment, or the clear cutting of the land for another slew of cheaply made townhouses?

Be careful what you lobby against. The cure might be worse than the disease.
