SHILOH – Resident Greg Peterson came to the Shiloh Board to help preserve green space and create a park in the Hunter’s Crossing Subdivision. He’s hoping the board will step in and help create a pocket park in the subdivision, especially after recent language in the update to Shiloh’s Comprehensive Plan. 

“The subdivision is mostly filled up with homes right now. There’s just a handful of vacant lots left, and they’ve got prices on them from like $27,000 to $30,000. In the subdivision, you wouldn’t believe the number of walkers they have, the number of children they have. Every five minutes, it seems like someone is walking by, pushing a stroller, maybe a stroller with two babies in it. It’s on the end of the street, and they’re just always walking,” he said.
