Letter: Monster home mars beautiful neighborhood

In response to Lee Castonguay’s letter (“Monster homes can present extra properties,” Star-Advertiser, Aug. 9): He requested, “What’s the downside with them?”

Evidently he doesn’t reside subsequent door to 1 or have certainly one of these big properties on his road like we do. Only a few of the various issues: They take up the parking for all of the neighbors, automobiles velocity up and down our road coming and going always of the day and night time, and the home blocks any view and tradewinds we had beforehand.

In a neighborhood of older properties, this one is like an condominium constructing. There are greater than 20 folks dwelling there. All look like overseas renters who don’t converse English. How is that serving to our native folks with housing?

Generations of my household have lived on this property and it was an exquisite place to reside earlier than this monstrosity was constructed. The earlier homeowners, who lived there for many years, had so many stunning crops and fruit timber which can be all cemented over now.

Because the phrases to the music so rightfully described: “They paved paradise and put up a parking zone.”
