Come visit us at the Davisville Farmers Market in June Rowlands Park (corner of Davisville and Mount Pleasant) on August 4, 2015. SERRA reps will staff a booth from 3 to 7 p.m. to talk about development issues such as new condo projects and overly tall replacement houses on traditional residential streets. Traffic and pedestrian safety are also big issues for many of us. What are your issues?
