So after all those meetings and getting community input on what they wanted. The Commissioners look like they will be going with what the Commissioners wanted to do in the first place. Put a fence up and leave it there. This raises so many issues for the residents of Lake Padgett Estates. The homes in that area, will not sell. Having an unrepaired sinkhole near a property or in the neighborhood is not a selling point. The homes nearby will constantly worry if the hole will open up again and community safety will become an issue. I understand that repairing it will cost money, but what price tag can you put on quality of life and reassurance that your home will not be swallowed up by the earth.
I still want to know how far out does the original lake bed go? How many more homes and sinkholes will there be in this neighborhood? What are the residents going to do living next to a decorative fence? How is a decorative fence a viable solution?
