I thought the town was to suppose to serve its citizens, which up to now vehemently oppose dense housing. Also who is going to POLICE this development to make sure it only serves those who work in the town? How do you impose restrictions that limit those residents from willing their home to others? We own the land that backs up to this development, primarily to use for horses. How are you going to restrict these 8/12 homes from owning pets? Twelve barking dogs next to our home, is not why we chose to live in the country side.
