Residents on the east side of Indian Springs, Nev. are protesting a neighbor's request to change the zoning and put in a trailer park on their property. The planning commission recommended approval of the change even after the town board unanimously recommended(PDF) denying the request. It's sad to see a community go downhill. The east side of Indian Springs consists of larger parcels of land, many of which are home to horse and other agricultural estates. The community could be a real haven for horse owners and others looking for a great refuge from the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas. The saddest part is the number of people willing to sacrifice a good quality of life for a quick green (or peach) back.
