Re: “Should Wake County Spend Up to $20 Million to Convert a Failed Fuquay-Varina Golf Course into a Park?

Greedy developers are eating up our precious remaining open space in southeast Wake County, tearing farmland, pastures and woodlands into hideous vinyl subdivisions that only add to our unbearable traffic congestion and road improvement taxes, crowded schools that drive up our taxes more, and overall taxes in what was until very recently, an affordable community by REAL people standards, not government and real estate developers standards.

I found myself suddenly completely disabled and unable to work. I have now plummeted from middle class to poverty because I cannot work now. Development has hurt Fuquay and shoved its low income and poor out of the county. I worked in Land Use Planning and Development for a major city and laughed at what they considered "affordable housing." They tore down low cost housing and mobile home parks and gentrified affordable neighborhoods to the point of the cost of housing and living being inconceivable for its low AND mid-income AND elderly AND disabled.

Shoving low or lower income, elderly and disabled REAL citizens into high-cost to build, ugly, drug and crime infested mega hosing is not the answer. Shoving working families out of south Wake County by ripping open space out and replacing with tacky, unaffordable vinyl, treeless, tiny lots subdivisions that cost too much isn't the answer.

There are workable solutions availble to maintain our open spaces, provide truly affordable housing to our deserving residents while proving infrastructure to our roads and crowded schools because of uncontrolled development by developers, poor regional planning and Wake County/local government.

Innovative housing ideas that preserves our open spaces and allows our true and good citizens, from our elderly, poor and hardworking families genuinely affordable and quality housing ARE available - we just won't see it occur from liberal government bureaucracies.

Raleigh is full of parks, and ruined Dorothea Dix dream and life's work to provide a place for our mentally ill and direly-needed treatment forDRUG ADDICTS who ruin our communities with crime, violence, loss of life, cost our law enforcement and penal system untold billions - into a park.

Fuquay needs this park at this location. There aren't safe places to walk within a short driving distance and I have to walk in the street with a walker. This open provides services for our disabled, elderly and quality of life for our local citizens.

NEVER TRUST government, they don't have a clue about innovative ideas that save our citizens money in the long run in building and tax cost.

This advocacy must come from a grassroots level.
