Traffic already clogging KI roads
Joe Stevens, legal representative for K. Hovnanian’s Four Seasons project at Dr. Benton’s old farm on Castle Marina Road, said “Hovnanian believes very little has changed” in the decade plus since the project was approved. (Bay Times, July 6)
Where have you been Joe? Have you tried to drive from the Safeway to the Dominion Road stop light on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday? Have you tried to get from Chester’s overpass through Stevensville on a weekend? All but impossible!
Between ordinary traffic and the famous “Reach the Beachers” clogging our county roads, Kent Towne Market’s parking lots repeatedly fill and feed into Chester’s single lane Main St. all weekend and often into the week, especially at lunchtime. Queen Anne’s County planning for traffic infrastructure for all Kent Island’s recent growth has been dismally neglected.
However, Joe, you think “nothing has changed” since 2005? Wake up, man — your client represents the proverbial “gasoline poured on (local traffic) fire” with the additional traffic growth expected by Hovnanian’s Four Seasons.
