Our office does not approve developments and we do not weigh in on these types of projects. If the developer is applying for any approvals through the Office of Planning & Development, you should provide your written objections to Josh Whitehead (copied here) and he will provide them to the pertinent legislative body.

This would not be happening in front of their home and I am going to fight it taking place in front of or down the street from mine. This has nothing to do with the concept, only the chosen location. When time permits, I need to speak to you, Allen Wade, and anyone else, whether for or against, this environmental hazard of a monstrosity being built at this location. You may visit iLoveShelbyCounty.com/graves-elementary-school to obtain additional information should the need arise. Meanwhile, I am contacting you at the request of a neighbor, Shelton McGhee Jr., but will not stop advocating for my people while waiting for you or anyone else to reply - which I have requested and I am doing. Regards, Yvonne D. Nelson, PhD, CNC 901.409.0408 dimans.org
