And if the County’s independent engineer comes up with the same conclusions as the developer will the nearby residents be satisfied? Or will they only be satisfied if the project doesn’t happen?

Hiring an engineer will usually get you some hard facts, not “a lot of opinions on a lot of different things” Joe. If you’re just looking for opinions, you can get “a lot” of those without spending $20,000.00!

Looks like a fire trap. 400 mobile homes squeezed into a dead end road with no fire hydrants.
