CABRITA POINT NEEDS MORE THAN RE-ZONING

Dear Source,
Congratulations to Joe Hodge and the members of the Senate that voted, despite the protests of residential property owners, to re-zone five acres on Cabrita Point to allow eight condominium units, two-story conference center, marina and swimming pool.
Did this rezoning include plans to make Bluebeard's Beach Road four lanes, install a traffic light at the intersection of that road and Cabrita Point Road?
Did this rezoning provide for replacement of burned-out street lights?
Did this rezoning allow for sidewalks on Cabrita Point Road, a road recently made unsafe to walk with the high volume of construction trucks and employees due to current construction.
Did this rezoning allow for repairs to Bluebeards Beach Road already strained and damaged from current construction?
Did this rezoning allow for expansion of the Red Hook Road necessary for the increased traffic this will bring?
Did this rezoning take into consideration the stress the current property owners are experiencing with current construction?
Cabrita Point Condominiums, owned by Joe Hodge, are already lacking in proper lighting and the existing swimming pool leaves something to be desired.
Is Joe Hodge, the party that filed for the rezoning, actually going to develop this land, or is he the front man for someone else?
Did this rezoning take into consideration the fact that every time there is a tidal surge, a section of Cabrita Point Road is under water?
Did this rezoning take into consideration the crime that takes place in this particular neighborhood and appropriate more money for police patrols/vehicles?
Did this decision take into consideration the devaluation of existing property due to construction noise and traffic.
Did anyone in the Senate take into consideration the wants of the people that are affected directly by this rezoning?
Does any member of the Senate live in this neighborhood?
I think not!
