My question to everyone is: Have you ever drove on Hwy 153 North Bound near the US 27 exits during morning or afternoon rush hour???? I live next to it!!! The over pass is on my property! We don't want a shopping center at that intersection, we don't want apartments, we don't want offices, we don't want anything! The creek floods on our property with every rain fall! Garbage from US 27 washes into our side yard! Due to the excessive traffic already on Hwy 153, it is quicker for us to drive into Red Bank or Soddy Daisy to shop than to navigate through Hixson! And everyone wants more traffic flow in this area!?!?! ["What the project will bring, however, are dozens of new retail stores, a quarter-million square feet of office space and 280 higher-end apartments — not to mention hundreds of jobs and millions of dollars in economic growth — all things the Hixson area desperately needs."] NEEDS?!? NEEDS?!? Am I missing something here? Hixson already has everything that Hamilton Place does, so what the hell do we need?
BTW am I the only one who has noticed the increase in gang graffiti and crimes in the Hixson area in the last three years???? Oh, I guess we NEED that too!
