Elgin's shrinking natural resources

hello

Due to the rapid growth and expansion of our population as well as in building commercial buildings in the Elgin area, the natural resources that enhance our community are diminishing. Because of this, we need to be more considerate of where we are expanding and how we are growing as a city.

Recently, a large chunk of agricultural land was destroyed to make room for a new Walmart. As a result, it has taken away land that could be used for crops, is increasing the costs of energy and power in the area, and also decreasing the natural environment.

This is just one example of what is happening all around the Elgin area, and it needs to be controlled in order for our city to support itself.
