Pros and Cons to Homes Near Sonoran Preserve

I just read your article regarding a master-planned community near the Sonoran Preserve [See “Master-planned Community,” In&Out Magazine, Nov. 22, 2018]. I have lived in Anthem for 13 years, and through those years I have seen a serious housing boom between Anthem and Happy Valley Road.

There are always pros and cons to a new community. The advantage is that new community building will create jobs. The disadvantage is we are losing the beautiful natural pieces of land that all of us Arizonans enjoy.

I have a feeling that prior to the construction of Dove Valley Road, real estate developers already planned to build along that road. That is such a beautiful short drive that I enjoy. I even mountain bike at the Sonoran Preserve.

I can imagine 10 years from now, that peaceful quiet Dove Valley Road will be another typical road that will connect thousands of cookie-cutter homes built on pristine desert. I am saddened to read this information.

No matter how many residents will oppose, we all know that money talks, and construction will be inevitable.
