Lifelong Ocala resident thinks homes replacing farms aren’t worth $300,000+

To the Editor:

My family came here from Rhode Island when my mother was 18, 37 years ago! I was born and raised here in Ocala, Florida. People from Florida can hardly live here because of the rapid growth, the constant increase in population, and the tearing down of beautiful farms and land for car washes and homes that are not really worth 300+ thousand dollars. To be able to afford to live here I would have to make 20+ an hour. And an employer is hardly ever going to pay that. Can Florida even handle any more of this? When will our city take action on this! It’s really sad to see because Ocala is such a perfect place to be but how it’s looking, not any longer.
