To the editor:
This newspaper has done an outstanding job of reporting information about various aspects of the recent expansion/development of Cody.
I particularly appreciate the balance, the pros and cons.
Unfortunately, the bulk of the people who have spoken up are those associated with real estate and profit machines, lots of market-speak.
I continue to be perplexed as to why other important perspectives haven’t been offered, views and facts that represent important aspects of the unique Cody culture.
Why hasn’t the World Wildlife Federation weighed in about encroachment? The EPA? Law enforcement and traffic control? Environmental groups? Will the FAA be required to address noise abatement/curfews?
Years ago, there was a song titled “Big Yellow Taxi” which highlighted issues such as those facing Cody. The refrain included the following words: “They paved Paradise and put in a parking lot.” I hope that will not become Cody’s legacy.
