Save Our Rural Heritage
A 291-Unit Trailer Park is being imposed on the Huntington Township community of Adams County, Pennsylvania. The developer (Robert Mumma/Caco Three)has a very negative business track -- bankruptcy, neglecting properties, and frivolous lawsuits -- but has made large political contributions and has ample financial resources.
A grassroots effort by concerned citizens is working to stop this development from harming this community, and setting a dangerous precedent for other such areas. This scenic, rural area is known for it's historical significance (Gettysburg Battle), safe and peaceful communities, and farmland.
The negative effects of the development include higher taxes, environmental harm, overcrowded schools, safety and security problems, dangerous traffic congestion, and destruction of the natural beauty of this area.
We, the undersigned (of legal age and U.S. citizens), oppose the imposition of the planned 291-unit trailer park between PA94 and Idaville-York Springs Road in Huntington Township (Adams County), because of the irreparable harm it will cause to the environment, agricultural economy, tourism, scenic landscape, and quality of life in this community.
Considering these and all other negative effects, we hereby strongly oppose the aforementioned plan and urge governmental entities at all levels, as well as all other organizations, to support us in preserving the rural nature of this area.
