Kiss the good life goodbye


Editor: Sundays paper had the lead headline “The housing boom has begun.” This was accompanied with an insert “Living the good life in St. Johns County.”

Well, as the housing boom explodes the good life will blow up with it.

We all realize people will want to move to attractive locations. However uncontrolled growth will eventually make St. Johns County a less attractive location. Overcrowding, traffic and increased crime are sure to follow uncontrolled growth.

Here in Fruit Cove we are already seeing that. A drive down Race Track Road or County Road 210 is utterly depressing — fighting traffic while viewing miles of cleared land knowing all too soon these roads will become Blanding Boulevard East.
