Riddance of trees makes sad sight

I can’t help but be sad when I travel past the construction site at Casey and Youngs roads and the way they totally destroyed what was previously a beautiful green space.

There is something seriously wrong with the Town of Amherst officials who see nothing wrong with allowing certain developers to destroy everything growing in this once-beautiful area to live in.

They only seem to care about adding more and more highly taxable housing developments to their tax rolls. Not to mention, there is a mounting high-traffic problem developing on those roads.

We loved this area when we moved here 16 years ago. I am not too sure about that anymore.
