Melissa Mengel started this petition to Church Town of Pulaski and Spirit of Life Worship Center

I have lived at my home for a little over three years. Peaceful secluded area. There is a fairly new church named"Spirit of Life Worship Center" First I'd like to say I myself grew up christian and have nothing personal against this church or it's people. I have introduced myself and family when we first moved in..we have enjoyed their music and siging..I wave and say hello often...I let them park in my yard and drive way for over crowded events when them and the other church down the road come together as one...I have respected and loved thy neighbor....that said the past few days they have been across the street from me cutting down a beautiful piece of wooded area that is home to so much wildlife including owls woodpeckers various birds turtles frogs deer etc. I asked them what they plan to do with it and was told basically it's going to be a parking lot or a place for more church advertising signs (they just put a huge neon blinking sign down on Randolph ave if they put one like that up it will shine right into my windows).

It is clear to me that they own the property but with much research and many phone calls and advice I am petitioning the court about their plans and need some back up hence this change petition asking for friends to sign and share.

This morning the man cutting and I had words he made this about race (as if we need more of that right now smh) he claimed I was "harassing him" when I was just asking simple questions about their plans with our shared neighborhood...as he proceeded to ask me about my religious background then stare me and my child down while he started his chainsaw with a vengeance...he is  being very unsafe wears no safety gear has no idea how to run a chainsaw I've watched him get it stuck several times! Some of these trees are very very large and he is going to get hurt. (Yesterday he was attacked by bees.) Karma?

I've spoke to zoning and there is no application in the town office for them to start building so I am petitioning it NOW and my voice will heardwhen the hearing is held in a right to build meeting where they are told all the regulations they would need to pass before building anything! As a member of the community and neighbor to the church...I know I have rights that can be exercised and I plan to do just that to protect this little piece of home to these animals!! 

Again this is nothing personal as I am not racist nor do I have problems personally with the church...even though it seems they want to take it that way....I just believe in mother nature love the wildlife that resides across from me (and all wildlife)..I love watching the birds and seeing the deer hearing the woodpeckers etc...

Have compassion for all gods creatures right?

They already have a huge church huge parking lot why take away from the beautiful wildlife there just to add another parking lot!?

Another concern of mine is this will also take away from the privacy for me and a few other neighbors and you would think they would take that into consideration.They never asked how we felt about it or anything... I have asked to speak to the congregation or minister I have sent them emails and tried calling but seems they just do not care about thy neighbor. They rather see me as a nuisance than thy neighbor or just someone who genuinely cares about the wildlife in that especially specific area...it's just too beautiful and serene...these poor animals are running out of places to go...they need someone to stand up and protect them! Even if I lose I feel better standing up for something I believe in...

There has to be something that can be done. Or some kind of compromise between neighbors. Or so I hope.

If anyone has any questions before signing this petition feel free to email me at melissamengel86@gmail.com 

Thank you for the support.
