Letter: Richmond’s green space gone

Dear Editor,

From what I see every day, I believe that Richmond is slowly becoming more and more polluted by the dust from construction.

From building town houses, to apartments, to plazas, there is no end to it.

I still remember the days when we could actually see large, spacious areas filled with fields of grass and trees. What happened to the beautiful, green landscape of Richmond?

Everywhere I go, all I see are trucks, bulldozers, and workers holding stop/slow signs. Not to mention how it is impossible to get anywhere on time due to construction being everywhere.

As a student who has to tutor and work after school, I find it absolutely irritating how we have to purposely choose to go a different route just to avoid traffic.

The scenery of what I used to think Richmond had is gradually disappearing as towering buildings take over the city. Is it really necessary to knock down old, but usable homes just to improve the outlook? I think it is time to limit the amount of construction we’re having and focus more on the future of our environment and generation.
