DOA/VA NURSING HOME
Adjacent to Grovemont off Woodland Drive
(Construction to start within next few weeks.)
It’s exciting that additional veteran services
and jobs are coming to our area, however…
…quality of Life for the residents of
Grovemont may change drastically.
Concerns and Questions:
Traffic Increase due to the entrance being on Woodland Dr.
Construction traffic on Grovemont>Northeast>Woodland and
Hazardous conditions for children and pedestrians walking to and from
River pollution from construction, grading, & installation of geo-thermal
wells, etc. will flow straight from the adjacent streams into the Swannanoa
Light pollution from the around the clock facility lighting
Noise pollution from construction, 150 – 170 employees rotating through 3
shifts around the clock, visitors, ambulances, and pick up/deliveries.
13.2 acres to be clear cut with the majority of the project facing Woodland
and its residents – What will this do to the wildlife?
Swannanoa 4-H camp losing 4 acres of woods, relocation of their
Cherokee Cabin, and the campers will now be exposed to the construction
instead of pristine woodland areas from which they learn.
