Some residents of “Stonecress” gather in solidarity on a recent Saturday morning. They are concerned about a proposed development that will clearcut about 200 trees bordering their neighborhood to make way for another shopping center, some of which would be redundant with existing businesses nearby.

In addition to the loss of the tree buffer, they say it will greatly increase traffic, cause many months of construction chaos, and impact property values, all in the general vicinity of 305 and High School Road.
