Planning commission approves building in-ground swimming pool in floodplain of Mud Creek in northwest Fayetteville AR: In case you weren't there to comment, maybe you will want to contact planning-commision members now that the deed is done

Please click on individual images to ENLARGE: Now that I see the google map identifying the site of the house in question, I wonder why I bothered to speak out in defense of the riparian-zone ordinance. The Mud Creek is channelized through a golf course to the west and has Zero stream-side protection for a great distance. There was no stream-side ordinance when that golf course was authorized by the planning commission, which didn't include any of the current members. What does it take to educate people about the environment? In my case it was exposure to hunting and fishing and seeing land needlessly cleared along streams for agriculture and streams and lakes polluted by oil and gas production in north Louisiana, southwest Arkansas and northeast Texas. My father led me to appreciate the natural forests and swamps and to honor the rights and feelings of people with fewer resources than I had. But the schools can teach science and allow children to learn to think past their own selfish needs.
