Somebody doesn’t know what’s up


In the Sept. 24, 2014 issue of The Citizen, the headline article on Page 1 was entitled, “Young adults wave goodbye to Fayette.” On Page 3 there was an article entitled, “Peachtree City prepares for 1,329 new residents.”

The first article noted that Fayette County leads the nation in the exodus of millennials (age 28 and younger) that are leaving for other communities.

The second article noted that the proposed Crestwood subdivision would have 650 “age-restricted units for persons 55 and up” (almost half of the proposed 1,329 units).

What am I missing? We lament the exodus of millennials on Page 1 and then on Page 3 we tell them we are not going to let them live in almost half of the proposed new housing.

Does the left hand know what the right hand is doing?
