LETTER: Are we paving over paradise?

We'll all be stuck in traffic on our way out of Orange County to try and get away from city life.

The article on the development east of Winter Garden  gave me pause when I read the sentence, "On the north side of plant, across from the Strates property, where bald eagles frequently perch high in the trees, the city envisions a high-end grocery store." I honestly don't know how to wrap my head around that statement.

What are we thinking? Are we going to pave over paradise? Does the future of West Orange County include all buildings and no nature? No parks? No greenspace? We have some of the best weather in the country, and in the future, we will have nowhere to enjoy it. We'll all be stuck in traffic on our way out of Orange County to try and get away from city life.
