As many of you may have learned today (as I have), Councilman John Summers has requested that a bill to establish a conservation overlay be added to the agenda for the Metro Council meeting scheduled for Tuesday night, June 5.
As anyone who has lived in Sylvan Park for any length of time is aware, this has been a contentious issue in our neighborhood. There are strong opinions on both sides of this issue, and I encourage anyone who is passionate about this issue to share their opinions with the Metro Council. It is an important part of the political process that the voices of neighborhood homeowners and other residents be heard.
This has not been an issue that the SPNA steering committee has discussed during the course of this year. SPNA has focused the entirety of its time and resources in 2007 on activities and initiatives that bring our neighborhood closer together and ultimately serve the greater good for Sylvan Park.
