Losing Trees

Sorry to hear that 20 acres in the Mill-Johnson area are soon to be clear-logged. [update: south of Johnson, east of Mill] I would guess that most people here are fond of the Point's rural quality, especially illustrated by its trees and its small-ish houses almost randomly distributed about our almost 5 square miles.  So, while the Character Plan Committee is fussing about gas station signs*, we lose trees, mega-houses get constructed, radio towers are scheduled to be inserted*** (by the FCC, in this case, not by the county).  One can only hope that the Character Plan Revision Committee is looking to focus on the things we actually care about.**

*In its defense, that is the task of the Character Plan Committee, so the members can't really be criticized for focusing on what they're told to focus on.  However, some cups don't need to be drunk, even if that doesn't permit you to drink some other cups that aren't on offer.

**If you long to read the Character Plan, there is a copy of it here
This link takes you to the Friends of the Library webpage and on the right side toward the bottom, click on 'other reference documents' and then, on the left column, click on Character Plan.  It's a pdf file so it takes a bit to come up.

***Surely being appropriately and admirably responded to by the community via the Stop the Towers group.
