I have so many fond memories of growing up in the Windsor Village neighborhood of Decatur. My grandparents moved to Windsor Village in 1964, my parents moved there 1978, and I returned to live in Decatur several years ago. I had hopes to raise my children in the same peaceful neighborhood I remember from my childhood.
Developing the corner of U.S. 51 and Ash is not what I hoped to see when I returned to Decatur. The traffic issues that are inevitable from this proposed development will be a threat to our children, not to mention motorists and residents who use U.S. 51 and Ash Avenue on a daily basis.
Is any amount of possible, not guaranteed, tax revenue worth the safety and well being of Decatur's residents, especially the children?
