Beware drawbacks of overdevelopment
Are we, the citizens of Palm Beach and adjoining counties, looking out for our own best interest as we approve massive housing developments, allow immense concrete condominiums and consider luring Amazon to set up its second headquarters? The answer is no.
All you have to do is spend time in Tampa, Orlando or Miami to see the results of uncontrolled development. Sit in those ubiquitous traffic jams. Bounce along the roads that have gone unrepaired. Listen to city and county leaders try to explain the untenable proposals to fix their lack of planning.
Slow down. Fix the current problems. Carefully lay out the plan for the future. GEORGE BIEBERBACH, NORTH PALM BEACH
