Neighbors Upset at Clear-Cutting for new LDS Chapel
ANCHORAGE, ALASKA -- Neighbors of an LDS Chapel under construction in Eagle
River told a local news channel that they were upset that acres trees and
shrubs on the property were clear-cut in preparation for construction of the
building. City planners defended the action, saying that the Church's plans
were 'excellent' and meets local building code and landscaping requirements.
Still, local residents say they wish Church representatives had attended
council meetings to get resident input on their plans.
