Charity Park, NOT Chaps Park

Pittsboro, NC - While trails and horse stables sound oh so elegent (albeit environment impactful with trail erosion, horse manure pathogens and nitrogen, and nasty carbon footprint from affluent visitors pulling horse trailers), what happened to sensitivity to the needy, a Pittsboro/Chatham core value.

Rather than donate 7,100 plus acres to Nature Conservancy, let's encourage the investors behind Chatham Park do something infinitely more altruistic and charitable. 7,100 plus acres devoted to low-income housing. High-density low-income housing too, surely they can afford it given the extra benefit to those in need.

Not only can they be proud, Pittsboro and Chatham County will be forever changed to THE location the needy hear about and gravitate to. It will be a blessed new chapter here, something we can all share in with neighbors we are proud of.

Our core values or a selfish elitist playground for the affluent.
