West Nile breeding ground in Whitestone
The remaining 6 acres of the former CYO site in Whitestone has been the topic of several posts on this blog and local papers.
As of today, it sits vacant, abandoned, and rapidly becoming a breeding ground for the West Nile Virus, as well as a home to numerous raccoons, opossums, and God knows what else.
The attached photos show the extent of the overgrown weeds.
With the warm winter behind us, the mosquitoes are bigger and hungrier than ever. In light of recent events with at least one confirmed tragedy due to the West Nile Virus, this site needs to be cleaned up immediately! Regardless of who owns it, who doesn't, etc.
Our Elected officials need to contact whomever they need to contact and get it cleaned up!
Please, before the Summer is in full swing, let us avert another tragedy.
