Editor, Ceres Courier,
I applaud the City Council for voting 4-1 against apartments on Mitchell Road.
The council did the wise thing for the residents of Ceres and stood against bad planning and for the future of our city. Residential growth strains our city’s infrastructure and services that we must provide our citizens. High-density residential such as the proposal on Mitchell impacts our city in a long term negative way. We must be cautious about adding apartments and focus on commercial development on our main corridors. Bad planning decisions never go away just take a look around town.
Good job to those on the council that prevented a very bad planning decision.
