To the County Council of Richland County: We, the undersigned residents of WildeWood and/or northeast Columbia, are strongly opposed to the road connecting the proposed development (RC Project #03-49MA) to Old Still or Leaning Tree Roads. We are not opposed to the development, but merely the creation of the road that would become a through street to and from Two Notch Road to Mallet Hill Road and Polo Road. This new road (in which the proposed gates cannot be policed) would bring significant \"cut-through\" traffic throughout the interior streets of WildeWood. In addition, the sheriff\'s office has publicly stated that crime rates in the neighborhood would increase as a result of this road. Our unified opposition to this road is based upon safety and traffic concerns. We do not believe that the developers have the right to degrade our neighborhood and we ask that County Council members NOT approve this project if it includes the access road. Respectfully submitted to Richland County Council for consideration at public hearing to be held May 27, 2003.
