Letter: Housing plan too dense for Plainview

We moved to Plainview more than 45 years ago to get away from the multistory congestion of Brooklyn. We wanted a community of single-family homes.

Since then, we have seen a number of changes that have to some degree urbanized our community. There are apartment dwellings such as The Villas and several buildings for senior citizens.

It's time to stop Plainview from becoming a South Florida-type community. As a senior myself, I say we should preserve what's left of suburban Plainview.

There is nothing country about the Country Pointe project ["Plainview housing could revive village," Letters, Feb. 25]. It's urban sprawl and shouldn't be built here.
