Letters: Yorkson construction never ends

Dear Editor,

I am living in a construction war zone in Yorkson. For the past three years my wife and I have endured both new construction and civil work that goes on seven days a week. 

We live with constant disruption from trades deliveries and noise from hammering and construction crews. It is a dirty and toxic way to live, brought on by the Township’s policies to support greedy builders and developers. 

Why must it go on from dusk to dawn seven days a week? Why must any open and vacant lot be wiped out and developed? 

I am also pointing a finger at the developers who who are buying all the available lots and padding their pockets without a thought of how this type of rabid development affects our quality of life. 

My only thoughts are about when I can go outside and hear peaceful “silence” someday.

Sean Ploss, Willoughby
