Edison should oppose Dismal Swamp development
On behalf of the independent nonprofit Edison Wetlands Association , I am writing regarding the township of Edison's major step backwards in voting to divert preserved park land within the Dismal Swamp Conservation Area in order to build a sprawling center off Alexis Lane.

Notify the EPA of potential violations.
This will cost Edison taxpayers plenty.
Here's how it has always worked to line pockets:
The town sells land adjacent to North Edison Little League field for pennies to a "developer". The next year the town says they need land to expand the ballfield, so they approve payment of $millions to the developer to buy the land back, "for the kids."
Same thing: Oak Tree Pond
Taxpayers say "Don't build on the Oak Tree Pond site. Save the Wetlands!" Developer says, " I was gonna put up a Walgreens and a Savings Bank there. Pay me $millions and I WON'T BUILD." So then the town tries to use eminent domain to try to steal the bus company property across the street, and repeat the game again on that site.
This is about paying Visco $millions to NOT BUILD.
They should ALL BE IN JAIL, and their assets should be returned to the public coffers.

I say let them develop it and build more
apartments for Indians that will be infested with bedbugs and roaches within a few months tenants move in
Just like all the other "Indian" apartment complexes in the town.
