• I watched the Farragut (Municipal) Planning Commission meeting of Dec. 17, and Vice Mayor (Louise) Povlin said that she had lived in New York and Washington, D.C., and that traffic in Farragut was not that bad. She said people should be willing to sit through more traffic light signals to have the new, walkable Town Center. I do not agree. The needs of the few do not outweigh the needs of the many. Traffic in Farragut is the single biggest issue with quality of life and public safety. I no longer want a Town Center; I am very much against this project. The Mayor (Ron Williams) and the aldermen said there would be very little increase in traffic — and now the vice mayor says that there will be (an increase). I am stunned. Please contact the mayor and aldermen and ask that the Town Center be voted down.
