Another local toon

There's a new town coming out of the ground here in NE Florida. No, seriously, they're building a new town called Nocatee in Western St. Johns County, and this thing is a monster. It has a brand new freeway running through it, tons of new homes, tons of new commercial real estate. At a time when building has slowed across the country this community seems to be bullet proof so far.

During the planning phase, developers promised not to build along the Intracoastal waterway, which runs through the eastern part of the town. Well, since then, they've had a change of heart. That puts the scenic views of everyone currently living along the eastern bank at risk. Hence, this cartoon. I LOVE this idea for it's sheer simplicity, and subtlety.
