Nestled along West Friendly Avenue lies a natural treasure that has been the backdrop to generations of families: majestic trees, each over a century old, standing as silent witnesses to the passage of time. These towering sentinels, with their sprawling canopies, have not only provided lush greenery but have also been a cornerstone of the area’s serene and picturesque charm, making it an idyllic place for families to grow and thrive. However, this tranquil haven faces an impending threat. Glenn Drew’s plans to erect high-density townhomes pose a dire risk to this cherished landscape. His proposal, starkly out of sync with the area’s character, could lead to the destruction of these ancient trees, irreparably altering the neighborhood’s unique aesthetic. The introduction of these incongruous structures threatens to disrupt the harmonious blend of nature and community, potentially turning a once serene residential haven into just another congested area, stripping away the essence that has made West Friendly Avenue a beloved family-friendly locale for so many years.
