What's at Stake? -- STOP the Land Grab!
Should the economic interests of a few take precedence over the collaborative efforts of the many to create a liveable community for everyone?
One developer who owns a lot of land to the North and West of Lawrence appears to be trying to change the direction of growth of the city of Lawrence to benefit himself and his Cohorts. This is likely to commit taxpayers to building costly infrastructure and it is contrary to long range intelligent planning that resulted from years of collaboration amongst community leaders and citizens. If you value green spaces, public transit, clean air, clean water, lower taxes, responsive government and Smart Growth, then you must speak up NOW. Don't look to our local media to inform you of the facts here either -- the Lawrence Journal World has been strangely quiet on this whole matter.
