Deforesting Channing Valley
Georgia Power has cut down far more of the tree line that shielded our neighborhood from I-75/Howell Mill Corridor than originally planned and are refusing to replant mature trees as there hasn't been adequate complaint from our neighborhood. Let's change that.
- Decreased Security Channing Valley now has direct access to Howell Mill and the crime intensive stretch of that road from I-75 to the Shell station.
- Increased Noise Pollution The clearing is so robust that is has created a "sound funnel" both down Forrest Trail and the ravine where the power lines run. It has radically increased ambient noise. It has also enabled new noises such as motorcycles, trains, sirens and loud cars that were almost never even heard before and made them an ongoing round-the-clock occurrence.
- Decrease to home values- The negative effect on aesthetics due to tree loss, the addition of new and increased noise pollution and having direct access to local crime hot spots will result in one thing: decreased home values for everyone if we don't act.
