In reference to a developer's statement about losing two parking spaces to save a mature live oak, I put my bet on the live oak. When the "new" wears off the coffee shop, he won't need the two parking spaces, but the live oak will still be gone.
Careful friends, if we keep going we will "kill the goose that lays the golden egg." Are these folks aware of the positive, free publicity Beaufort has received recently?
We also had the excellent article by Maxine Lutz recently in the paper, asking, "What do we want Beaufort to look like?"
We need to question a form-based zoning code. What is wrong with having open spaces? That is part of what makes us special. We are not full of stuff. We have space to breathe and appreciate our lovely surroundings.
