Mallory Farm problems listed

Published 5:11 pm Tuesday, April 20, 2021

Editor, The Smithfield Times:

The Mallory Scott Farm development proposal will:

  • Alter the character of Smithfield, Rescue, Battery Park and Carrollton.
  • Raise taxes for all residents.
  • Increase student enrollment beyond its current capacity.
  • Cause environmental damage, loss of animal habitat and negatively impact water quality.
  • Increase traffic on our congested two-lane roads, especially the Nike Park Road and Battery Park Road area with no turn lanes.
  • Overstress police, fire and rescue services, and those who volunteer.
  • Increase existing flooding for already established neighborhoods, such as Wellington Estates, with severe flooding issues that have not been resolved.
