Borough Council members should put their ears to the ground: “too much, too fast” in Everybody’s Hometown.
During the past month, volunteers from Keep Media Green have been knocking on doors throughout our town, talking with our neighbors, while gathering over 500 signatures on a petition calling on Media Borough Council to rezone the 12-acre Broomall’s tract from Residential to Recreational (Municipal, Educational, Recreational, and Community -- MERC). Over and over, we heard residents repeat the same theme: there has been too much housing development going up too fast in Media. We heard this sentiment expressed by residents in every neighborhood; from young and old, and from Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. “The character of the town is changing.”
“It feels more like Conshohocken than Media.”
“The last thing this town needs is another housing development.”
“Someone needs to slow down and chill out.” The recent housing development projects at the west end gateway and in the northern precinct, as well as others around town, have caused a grassroots quake that is RUMBLING beneath the surface. It would be wise for our elected officials to put their ear to the ground and listen.
Keep Media Green!
