Southfields is not 'smart growth'

Letters to the Editor

I understand why some of the people of Elkton are against Southfields. It includes warehouses! How may more warehouses can Cecil County absorb. I live in North East and the new monster being built where Nazarene Camp was, is a mistake, pure and simple. It will loom over the town for decades and will be a traffic nightmare. There is growth and then there is smart growth. Think high paying jobs. This is a good example of “the powers that be” transforming our beautiful rural recreational county into an industrial warehouse eyesore so they can say, look what we accomplished! Tourists will go elsewhere.

The World Health Org classifies diesel exhaust as a known Group 1 carcinogen - lung and bladder cancer. ”Small particulate pollution has health impacts even at very low concentrations – indeed no threshold has been identified below which no damage to health is observed.”
