Not neighborly

Pantego Christian Academy administration is patting itself on the back and saying it listened to neighborhood objections regarding lights for its new stadium. It did not listen very well. The lights are only part of the objections. Noise, on-street parking, trash and decline in property values are just a few of the problems associated with the facility.

Neighborhood objections extended much farther than the people on Waggoner Dr. as reported in the newspaper. There are at least a dozen streets in the area surrounding the academy that will be negatively impacted by construction of this facility, which will be nothing but a nuisance to the area.

It is more than a little disconcerting that PCA, which pays no property taxes can force their way with no consideration of the long-term effects on the neighborhood. There are other options that PCA could pursue and it’s time for that to happen if PCA wishes to be a good neighbor.
