Tell us pros, cons of sprawl




        Suburban sprawl is being felt throughout southern Warren County, and it affects virtually every aspect of life: where we shop, how our children are educated, how much tax we pay, the time we spend commuting.

        Some residents here have suggested that enough is enough. But growth has shown little sign of abating: Malls and shopping centers are sprouting, and subdivisions continue to grow.

        How is all this growth and change affecting your quality of life? Are you finding more convenience, greater choices, better employment opportunities? Or are you frustrated with waiting in lines, in traffic, at your favorite restaurant or grocery store? Are you concerned about your school district's ability to absorb new students? Or do you just miss the slower pace and rural flavor that many people moved here to enjoy?

        The Enquirer would like to hear about your experiences, and your views on how growth is changing things in southern Warren County. Send your letters to David Hofmeister, assistant local news editor:

        • By fax, at 860-5190.

        • By mail, at 4820 Business Center Way, Cincinnati, OH 45246.

        • By e-mail, dhofmeister@enquirer.com.

        Please submit your letter by Aug. 31.
