In my last newsletter, I reported that I was exploring ways of addressing the issue of overdevelopment in our residential neighborhoods in the form of what are commonly known as McMansions – the construction of gargantuan houses, which are out of character with the neighborhood. Through my efforts, I am pleased to report that the Department of Development has offered a proposal to limit such overdevelopment. Public hearings have been scheduled on this proposed legislation and I welcome your input on this important issue. While I respect a property owner’s right to improve his or her property, the preservation of the character and quality of our neighborhoods is of prime importance.
