At the Save the Lakes meeting Monday morning at 9:30 there was standing room only. Chairs were brought into the Ahwatukee Recreation Center main hall for many homeowners eager to hear anything positive about the ongoing debacle between Mr. Gee and the homeowners themselves.
On Aug. 8, I read an article written by Dan Tamblo, a good writer. I have also read a few other articles about The Lakes and the proposed residential housing project in this paper. I agree with those homeowners (51 percent or more, I hope) who do not support further residential development at The Lakes Golf Course.
NO! Tell this message to Pulte and Mr. Gee. Remember, these guys are NOT our friends. They are not trying to “work with us.” They are rolling right over us. They have meetings filled with convenient conversations. This is like petting your cow just before butchering it. NO! I have been around these travesties before and years afterward neighbors are shrugging their shoulders saying, “Gee, we got taken again.” Don’t let it happen to us. They cannot promise a density of homes in our golf fairways until they get final permission from the Phoenix Planning and Zoning Commission.
A fiction novel that takes readers into the depths of corruption in government and frustrated consumers ready to handle it in extreme ways may not be far off from the truth, according to Ahwatukee Foothills resident Dan Tamblo.
