One man’s vision for Wellington, as detailed in the Feb. 22 Town-Crier, was a vision created after Wellington came into existence.
I purchased a lot in this community in 1976 and built my home in early 1977. At that time, the “Wellington community development” was owned by Alcoa Breakwater and the vision was to create a golf community, not a horse community. Then the money came to town and with it came the wealthy people who like to control things, including politicians.
The equestrian community in all its forms has done great things for this community but now we need to find the way to channel greed and control to constructive community development that satisfies all our residents’ egos and meets the needs of the community at large.
