DEAR EDITOR:

Once again, we see the self-indulgence of Holly Springs government in approving more high-density housing in the form of apartments for Gresham Mill Parkway.

Will the city leadership ever get the message from city and county residents that Cherokee does not need to replicate DeKalb County with its crime, corruption and poor infrastructure because of high-density housing especially apartments?

Is Holly Springs government determined to kick its long-term city residents and the county in the shins just to increase its revenue? What is their mindset?

There is nothing positive long-term about apartments, most properties are built and sold several times over their life span with increasing degradation to the property. Have you ever seen an apartment complex that looked better 20 years after being built that when it was new?

Ask any responsible law enforcement agency in the metro area what properties take most of their call time and the answer will always come up apartments.

Metro TV stations lead stories every day include crime issues at apartment complexes.

Holly Springs, please do your own residents and those around you including the county a favor and stop approving more high-density housing.
