Council Statements Regarding CV Link

In citing text from the meeting minutes, others' comment is not often included, and no ellipses are provided.

The council minutes provide a summary of her statement, "she believes she speaks for all of the homeowners who live in Thunderbird Villas, Thunderbird Heights and Thunderbird Cove and does not see this CV Link proposal as beneficial in any way to the homeowners of these communities, which would be directly in front of all three. This project would be extremely detrimental to the aesthetics and property values of all the homes affected from Paxton Drive to Country Club Drive. She further stated these communities are high-end, secluded, private and well maintained and they want to keep them that way. She said their concerns are that this proposal would create a traffic hazard, an increase in crime and vandalism and they do not support it."
