Letter to the Editor
Revisit planning, set priorities for township

August 14, 2013

Dear Editor,

We moved to Independence over 30 years ago and thought we were coming to a quite and serene area with lots of natural features and friendly folks.

It now appears that our township is working hard to bring growth and new businesses into our community and expand the tax base ("Sashabaw Road improvements lead to...," July 24).

I, for one, think we need to revisit this planning and set some other priorities such as: preserve our natural areas, avoid the introduction of large businesses and industry and stay small and friendly. I'd like hear from others who feel the same way.
