Since coming to Taylor, in summer of 2009, I’ve admired this field along Carlos Parker Boulevard. It’s a 40-plus acre swath of land residing next to Taylor Middle School. It’s been for sale for most of that time, but lately I’ve noticed a larger sign posted there. Tonight, I stopped by to take a few photos of the field of corn thriving there, and the farmhouse in the distance. If anyone has lived there, it’s apparently been a while. After almost 30 years in metro-Atlanta, we wanted small and quiet, open. If and when this land sells, we’ll see what happens. People need places to live, making this a good place for a subdivision. More growth means a lessening of our tax burden, too, but the rural character of the area is something to be cherished. I do.
