On Thursday, Aug 4. my wife and I joined about 200 other people for a hearing in the county's George Howard Building.
The subject was a study and proposed land acquisition for a road spur from the west side of Route 108 in Clarksville to Auto Drive in Clarksville. The proposal is a very poor solution to a problem that may or may not exist.
The impact of the proposal on businesses and property owners affected is intolerable. It is difficult to see how or why the Howard County planning people would waste their time and county funds on an unnecessary study to reach an unsatisfactory conclusion.
If the people of the community are to have control of their own communities this proposal is "dead on arrival."
