In her Feb. 19 letter to the editor regarding Greenwood Planning and Zoning, Mary Richard concluded by saying that allowing the activity to be provided by St. Louis County would “end much of the questionable goings on. The favoritism will be much less. The rules will be followed.”
Until recently I served on the Planning and Zoning Commission for several years and such statements cannot be supported with facts. If Mary has information to the contrary that is factual and not simply her opinion she should present it.
Unfortunately allegations such as this have become commonplace at Greenwood Township lately. Each of us must ask if this is factual and what is needed to improve our community for ourselves, our families, and future generations. On the other hand, is the allegation a short-sighted personal objective that may destroy our community? Personal opinions, while interesting, may not represent the best option in the long run for Greenwood Township.
