Re "McKinley plan draws two crowds" (Our Region, April 22): Why does The Bee keep referring to this small piece of undeveloped land as awkward? There’s nothing awkward about land that has miraculously escaped the greedy clutches of developers for this long. It’s a pleasure to see the birds, grasses and flowers while trapped on the freeway.

As for McKinley Village, the developers could care less about the creatures who already call this awkward piece of land home, but I sure do and I bet many others also do.

I cringe at the thought of developers bulldozing over this land, cruelly killing and maiming wildlife as they go. The birds and bees can't vote and don't have money, but I care a lot more about them than I do about the developers making more money for themselves.

City Council members - will you please say no to the developers?
