My point: Don't turn Coney Island into mini-Sentosa

SINGAPORE- Under the Urban Redevelopment Authority's draft master plan, Coney Island will become a mini-Sentosa with residential developments ("Journey towards a 'car-light' Singapore"; Monday).

I am not looking forward to this. In the evenings, one can see at least 20 eagles soaring above the trees on Coney Island, before landing to nest in them. It is a majestic sight indeed.

Once the trees are chopped down for housing, the eagles will disappear from Coney Island.
