Our area currently (NW SJ Co) is still far from over-developed. We have miles and miles of green space and/or preserve. But to someone who was here only 5-10 years ago it is vastly different due to so many new housing developments going up with very little retail coming in other than the Durbin Park project, which is still a ways away. The issue most people have is that the roads and schools have had trouble keeping up with the sudden influx of people.

We're probably painting a far worse picture than what it is. Still a great area, I'm so thankful to have moved here.

Right. There’s nothing wrong with saying, stop, it’s enough.

Especially if you moved to a place because there was little destruction and not much urban sprawl.

The real problem for me is the development of places that are supposed to be preserves. Heck, they want to start development at a NWF in Palm Beach county.

Developers take out the native landscaping and mature trees, replace them with sod and oak seedlings and call it Oak Hills or whatever.

The most beautiful neighborhood are the ones in which they built around the trees, and let the native vegetation grow back.

People want lawns for some reason. Nonnative and all those chemicals required for upkeep. Ugly.
