Letter to The Aegis

I am voicing my support for the Fallston Field House.
We desperately need a heathy lifestyle community venue in Fallston.
The Fallston Recreation Center was a first step but is always booked — to the point of not being able to work out or take classes as needed for a healthy lifestyle, especially in the winter.
We certainly don't need an RV park.
Please consider the numerous positive attributes places like YMCA, Bel Air Athletic Club and The Arena Club have provided Harford County and its citizens. We must promote healthier lifestyles.
Any potential traffic issues can be alleviated and/or mitigated. The NIMBY [not in my back yard] and CAVE [citizens against virtually everything] mentality is not acceptable and must be overcome, in light of all the positive benefits.
Fallston deserves an healthy amenity like the Fallston Field House!
