Letter to the editor: I care about what happens to Indiantown

Posted

Dear Village Council,

I appreciate your work and efforts.

I am very concerned about the culture, woods and wildlife and I care about what happens to Indiantown.

The facts are plans for urbanization were put together years ago without local resident discussion, examination or approval. Then in November of 2020 during a controversial presidential election and with severe local Covid restrictions in place preventing the majority of Indiantown residents from attending the meetings, these plans to completely undo all current deed restrictions that protect Indiantown from urbanization were quickly pushed through.

The village council has done a great job informing us about our water, DPW issues, Covid testing and vaccinations and about Fire and police matters. However, the Village council was silent about the drastic urbanization plans and only your website and a small section in the newspaper was used to notify the residents you love and care for as our Village Council representatives.

I request that the Village Council investigate why the drastic urbanization and land use changes were put into place that pushed aside all the current Martin County deed restrictions that protected us, the residents of Indiantown.

After the investigation and examination I urge you to take action and scrap the drastic rapid urbanization plan and open up the meetings to discussion and allow the Indiantown residents to decide if we want Indiantown to become a city like West Palm Beach or an area like Jupiter Farms and remain a small country town.

God bless Indiantown

John “JP” Pasquale
