I've followed the story about Rabbit Creek Community Church and their desire to expand for years and I must admit I'm baffled. Alaskans hold dear the right to own land and use it as an individual sees fit. Most Hillside lots do not have restrictive covenants and are covered with junk cars and blue tarps because it's the person's right to do so.
A church buys land on a major road, not far from a freeway, and attempts for many years to expand their ministry to the community. They've built a lovely facility and are careful and responsible in their expansion. This doesn't seem like a safety issue related to traffic or a water/well issue but a control issue from a few who want to dictate and diminish their rights.
Is this a traffic issue or land use? Or, maybe, even religious freedom? I live off Rabbit Creek Road too and believe that the church has a right to use its land how it sees fit. Let the city solve the traffic and accident issues on Rabbit Creek.
