Many neighbors have concerns about how this development would impact their property – including drainage and soil erosion. In addition, “Building D” is proposed to be built on a cliff’s edge, which is particularly concerning in light of the recent building collapse after Hurricane Ida. People are also worried about where all the wildlife will go (the “deer fence” is intended to keep deer out of that area) and the impact of massive tree removals.
