Timing is very tight so this is something that can not be postponed. If you don’t act immediately, you will suffer with reduced land value and a polluted environment.
Hillwood will control the conversation by stressing the same two points regardless of what objections anyone brings up. Lower taxes…more jobs…lower taxes…more jobs. Neither claim is true but, by repeating falsehoods and exaggerations endlessly, they will avoid any discussion detrimental to their plans, even if those claims are not true. They will drown out everyone else unless you do your part to dig below the surface and contact each person involved one by one.
Hillwood play for keeps. They will make a lot of money with this project to the detriment of Churchill Borough.
