Too much development will ruin paradise

I’ve lived on Kauai for nine years and have seen alarming changes taking place. Steadily increasing traffic, valuable land gobbled up by greedy developers with the promise of “affordable housing.” Maybe if you’re a wealthy person from the mainland or other country looking for an investment or second home, but certainly not for the average family living here.

Then, there’s the infrastructure and wastewater treatment issues. Why not use some of the land for what it was intended? How about community gardens, growing more of our own food is what we really need.

People come here to see paradise and soon it will be, “Where’s the paradise?”

We need to respect nature, not the almighty dollar. I see nothing, at all, to be gained by this development.
