VA entrance in Grovemont threatens the neighborhood quality of life

I am writing about the VA project in the Grovemont Community of Swannanoa. I am very thankful to our veterans for all that they have done for our country. I am not opposed to the facility by any means, however, I am concerned for the safety of our families! I strongly feel like the entrance should not come through our neighborhood. There is an alternate route from Lake Eden Road. There are many families with children that ride bicycles and walk in Grovemont.

I feel as if we were not taken into consideration. The increase in traffic may hinder our ability to continue to enjoy our neighborhood — not to mention the trucks and equipment that will be passing through during the construction process. Please take into consideration the families and people of Grovemont.
