On November 17, 2010, the Carmel residents spoke out against:
The destruction of precious land!
The demolition of historical buildings!
The end to dreams of creating a site that will “welcome” all to Putnam County.
Citizens voiced their concerns in regards to the Mahopac “Union Place” project and there was an overwhelming amount of residents against this plan. Unfortunately, that evening was just the beginning. Just as Sybil Ludington’s ride was just the beginning to our country’s freedom, our battle to protect the laws of the town has just begun. The Town Planning Board members may have been listening but DID THEY HEAR US?????
We must continue to speak out and prove to the elected officials of Carmel, that we expect all zoning laws to be adhered to and not revised to be financially beneficial for developers. We want a designed plan that will enhance our county and bring a substantial business tax base for the residents. We do not want, nor need, more housing, more traffic, more roads and more pollution.
We cannot allow a project as “The Retreat” to happen again. “We the people” must speak out! We must continue to write letters demanding that the Carmel Town Board and the Carmel Zoning Board of Appeals adhere to the laws. But now we must take our actions one step further --- WE NEED YOU TO SIGN THIS PETITION NOW!
