Ruining a View

So, I was on my way to work along my usual route when I noticed something different. This picture (I apologize for the poor quality) was taken from my car at the intersection of Grimes Bridge and River Bluff Pkwy at the east end of Grimes Bridge.

Apparently, the long foreclosed subdivision on the north side of the road is building a TALL fence on the border of the property along Grimes Bridge. I guess drivers, cyclists and pedestrians will no longer be able to enjoy the great view from the top of the hill anymore. Well, I guess we won't have to see the empty lots anymore either so we won't be reminded of the failed development as much.

This is just one more example of the private realm being given priority over the public realm.
