I agree 100% on stopping the growth in Dallas County. We need farm land too. Growth has gone way to far already.

Just send all the imagrants back were they belong and we would not need to grow

I agree partly, but most of the immigrants are people filling high tech jobs in WDM. Let's take their tax dollars and use the $ to raise our land values by improving city infrastructure. When Waukee figures out how to make itself the most desireable DSM suburb, values will climb and the immigrants you are worried about having for neigbors won't be able to afford it.
it sucked this year

who cares about farmland? we can just import cheap food from China, and hopefully it won't have lead or poison in it.
