Residents in the neighborhoods near Seager Park are concerned that a proposed development next to the park along Old Plank Road will destroy the feel of the neighborhood and the park by removing old-growth trees and replacing them with buildings.
On the other hand, Russ Whitaker, attorney for the developer, said, "What we are putting next to the park is no different than what exists next to the park right now. There are resident subdivisions on all sides of the park, and to add another residential subdivision is not going to change any character of the (area)."
Do you think the residents have a point, or is this just the price we have to pay for progress. Are you in favor of continued development in Naperville? Is there a compromise that both sides can work with?
