Shopping in Roseville? |

Shopping in Roseville?

Your article titled “Persistent leak,” Sept. 28, led me to ask myself, what is the problem? Many of us moved to Nevada County to get away from the crowds, noise, and pollution of cities and urban areas and to enjoy the advantages of a rural life (if you didn’t, why are you here?).

To keep it this way, we don’t want large shopping malls and discount stores in our county for any reason! I think it’s great that we have to drive 40 miles to reach these stores – it keeps the traffic and congestion where it belongs – in Placer County! Let their citizens deal with rapid population growth, and with the man-made ugliness that’s being created along Highway 65; we really don’t need this kind of sprawl in our community.

Yes, we’ll lose a few sales tax dollars, but that’s a small price to pay for living in an area that still has lots of natural beauty, character, and some semblance of peaceful living. Let’s keep it that way.
