Spotted in the yard of Alcoa resident Mike Stiehl
Residents of Alcoa's Springbrook community are drawing a yellow line in the sand to protest the city's proposal to make their quiet neighborhood a thoroughfare for a proposed shopping center.
Signs accompanied by yellow crime scene tape are springing up all over the neighborhood. Residents aren't opposed to development, they would just prefer it to be more responsible and more respectful of their nearly century old community.
More to come....
Resident Gary Hatfield working on his sign. Hatfield is opposed to making Alcoa Rd. a thoroughfare for the shopping center and says a roundabout at the north end of Mills St. would make more sense.
More yellow tape.
UPDATE: More signs...
