A Matter Of Opinion

Build it and they will protest

As happened on Glenrose Prairie, some residents in the Indian Trail area across town are upset by plans for a youth baseball facility in their neighborhood. The arguments are familiar: traffic, noise, lights, vandalism. 

Are the planners dense and insensitive that they keep trying to shove these facilities into inappropriate locations, or are the neighbors unreasonable, expecting to shut down all land-use evolution once they've staked out their own personal territory?

Thoughts? Please share.
