Air quality and gang activity are also increasing thanks to smart growth.

Outsourcing is abolished and Obama now prioritize American jobs for American. I see that the crab mentality exists at its full potential today. From very cheap piano bench to an increase because of poor market, even the music lovers have a hard time. Chasing the issues today and resolving these issues is not a simple task. I see that Obama is doing his best to argue all the negative comments but I see that he is doing fine. The US is a big country and few years of sitting as the President can not guarantee that all the problems will be solved soon enough.

Allowing more residences in a smaller area. Also the state of Idaho and the power company have been offering more incentives for energy star appliances.

Junk shops here are also very accessible.

We tried numerous times to discuss run-off concerns with various boards/staff and were met with disdain and conceit. It seemed that pools, tennis courts and selective enforcement of the covennants – ie, corruption – were the Board’s only concern. We pity the Bald Eagles, Merganzers, Buffle Head and wet land flora. It is time this neighboorhood receives fines for the damage it’s short-sightedness creates.

It’s unbelievable that this massive (ill-conceived, poorly executed) water/sewer project will actually ADD to poor water quality (the run off from this project goes into a source of drinking water!) as well as degrading the environment. Bottomline: environmentally and fiscally totally irresponsible, especially in this ‘informed’ day and age!

This is a simple way to help residents “go green,” and I believe it will be impactful for our small community. I would like to see more projects like this in the coming years focused on planting trees and other sustainable initiatives.
