Brookswood and Fernridge are two different communities

Editor: Re: the failed Brookswood and Fernridge Community Plan amendment.

Brookswood is a 40-year-old mature community of quarter-acre lots, and Fernridge is a clean slate, brought on by a moratorium on any subdividing 25 years ago.

Having these two diverse communities in the same development plan is not good planning. As long there is only a single plan for both communities, Brookswood residents are always going to outvote the less-densely populated Fernridge, and then nothing will ever get approved.
