Development: Fort Nugent losing its woods

I was upset to see that the wooded area by Fort Nugent Park was torn down.

If we get carried away and just start destroying fields and wooded areas, some families will start to move away because most people here like living in a small town and not a big city like Seattle.

It's always nice to walk through wooded areas and see little animals scurrying around, not hearing the sounds of big tractors and the awful sight of a torn down forest. I'm sure people are getting tired of roadwork and wooded areas being replaced to make more houses. I know I am.
