Petition Tag - rezoning
This land, Lot Area 44 on Golf Links Drive and East Natoma Street, is zoned for C-1 neighborhood Retail and/or Light Commercial, not Multi-Family, and goes against everything we were told this community would be when we bought our homes.
The proposed project and rezoning of this land would have an immensely negative effect on our property value, traffic, safety, the quality of life in our neighborhood, and does not fit in with the surrounding single-family neighborhood.
If approved, this will allow GreenStreet Companies, to build a multi-story, high-density apartment complex in the same area as Empire Oaks Elementary and Parkway/Empire Ranch homeowners.
We are individuals in Lower Saucon Township and surrounding areas that look at the pictures of IESI PA Bethlehem Landfill Corporation (IESI) and want to STOP the potential of this landfill site to become larger than the present allotted area IESI currently operates.
We know that the IESI Landfill presence has already had an impact to our area and resources.
• If you are looking at the above Lower Saucon Twp. IESI Landfill pictures and become sad, or angry or even disgusted,
• If you do not want further expansion of this Landfill area to become larger than the present allotted area IESI currently operates,
• If you want to protect our wildlife, their habitat and not have any more of our mountain stripped of its beauty,
• If you are concerned about many potential health hazards for you, your children and your grandchildren,
• If you are concerned about the odors that can come from this Landfill,
• If you are concerned with the number of properties IESI has already purchased in their area,
WE WANT TO THANK THE MEMBERS ON THE PLANNING COMMISSION FOR THEIR "VOTE NO" TO THE PROPOSED ZONING CHANGES FOR THE APPLEBUTTER ROAD REZONING.
Please check our website if there is any change or updates for new meetings. The Lower Saucon Township Council still did not VOTE "NO" on the Planning Commissions "VOTE NO" for the proposed Rezoning. www.StopTheLowerSauconDump.com
December 19th at 7:00pm will be the next meeting of the Lower Saucon Township Council. There will be an open discussion on the landfill. Come to hear what is being said to STOP the proposed REZONING of APPLEBUTTER ROAD. WE DO NOT WANT ANY CHANGES TO THE CURRENT APPLEBUTTER ROAD ZONING.
We want your help to join the group and voice your opinion on
STOPPING THE REZONING ON APPLEBUTTER ROAD.
Currently the Brisbane City Council is proposing to change the zoning within our community that will allow the building of 5 storey buildings.
It will also allow for high density townhouses to be built alongside existing residents houses.
This has been done with no consultation with the local community. The original plan from the council suggested no change to zoning but after reviewing their own plan the council has changed it's mind ?
Excellence Body and Paint, Ltd. (hereafter referred to as EBP) has asked the city of Round Rock to re-zone the lot located at the Northeast corner of Ledbetter St and Clark St from SF-2 (Single-family - standard lot) District to OF (Office) District. The stated land proposal use is as an office with included parking. Properties along Ledbetter St are currently all zoned as SF-2.
This is a unique neighborhood in Round Rock, with properties lying directly along the historic Brushy Creek. This is one of the oldest and most historic areas of Round Rock, with several buildings in the neighborhood classified as historic buildings. Re-zoning the described lot will not only prove detrimental to property values in the neighborhood, but also start a dangerous precedent for transforming this neighborhood into a commercial and industrial area.
Clark St is a short street running from Sam Bass Rd to Ledbetter St. Along with Brandi St, which doglegs from Sam Bass Rd into Clark St, this small area constitutes an industrial business park just North of Ledbetter St. The character of this area is distinctly different from that of the historic neighborhood directly to its South. I believe that attempting to merge these two neighborhoods is a mistake, as their characters are so distinct that the attempt to merge the areas will simply result in the destruction of the historic feel of Ledbetter St. Allowing the industrial area to encroach on the single family residence neighborhood will lower the desirability of living here, and could ultimately result in the destruction of this road as a residential and historic area.
The lot in question is large enough to support the construction of a single family home, as it is currently zoned and surveyed. It may seem unlikely for a family to build on this lot, as it currently backs up to EBP with only a chain link fence separating the lot from the industrial park in general, and EBP’s daily operations in particular. The construction of a residence on the property would be much more likely if the barrier between the lot and the industrial park were made more substantial. EBP recently purchased this lot, and initially requested that it be re-zoned for light industrial use. The request was changed to office when advised by the Planning and Zoning Commission that a request for light industrial zoning would likely be denied and very little of the property would end up being usable due to building restrictions with this zoning type. Rather than re-zone the lot, it could be possible to find a buyer for this lot who would use the property as it is currently zoned, for a single family residence. Additionally, EBP currently owns the lot across Clark St from their existing business location, and this lot is zoned commercial. I do not understand why there is a push to extend commercial operations into a residential area, when the existing commercially zoned areas have not yet been fully developed.
At the first city council hearing, several members expressed concern over this re-zoning, but tentatively approved the plan based on the assumption that due to the shape of the lot and the restrictions put on office districts, that an offensive structure will not be erected if the re-zoning request is approved. However, if the property is re-zoned, the city council and neighbors will no longer have any say in what structure can be erected on the property. The property owner has the right to use the property as he sees fit within the restrictions of zoning limitations. This fits the neighborhood when the zoning is single family residential, but could dramatically depart from the character of the neighborhood if the zoning is changed to office. If the zoning is changed to office district, then the owner will gain the ability to erect anything that meets those zoning restrictions, whether neighbors or city council members find them to fit with the character of the neighborhood or not.
In addition, we have concerns over increases in traffic in the neighborhood. Construction along Sam Bass Rd is currently detouring huge amounts of traffic through the neighborhood. This increase in traffic volumes and speeds on our narrow streets results in unpleasant and unsafe conditions for those of us walking, biking, and playing in the neighborhood. I understand this is a temporary sacrifice that is necessary to improve the quality of Sam Bass Rd. However, I do not wish to see additional development that will permanently increase the traffic flow through this area.
The city council indicated that it recommends business owners contact neighbors when attempting to have a residential lot re-zoned for commercial or office use. Based on prior experiences with EBP, I believed that their owners and management were not only professional and reasonable, but also ethical. I have been disappointed in their lack of communication with the neighbors regarding their desire to re-zone this lot. EBP has not only failed to open a dialog with the neighbors independently, but has also failed to comment at re-zoning or city council meetings. With this lack of communication, I do not see any reason for us as neighbors or you as a city council to support this re-zoning request. I believe that a solution to this issue could be found that would be satisfactory to all parties involved if an open discussion between the business owner and neighbors was initiated. The purpose of this petition is not to create an adversarial atmosphere between the neighbors and EBP, but to express our sincere concerns for development in this area and our desire to be included in the decision making process as the area develops.
Proposed school district rezoning plan by Clarksville Montgomery County School System would bus children that live in Eastern Hills Subdivision that currently attend Richview Middle and Clarksville High School to Rossview Middle and High.
Leander ISD recently adopted the zoning commissions recommendation to rezone Cypress Bend and some of the additional streets that are within our code that are part of another neighborhood.
According to LISD, our neighborhood makes up at total of 6% of Cypress Elementary, or 61 kids.
Some of the families have been rezoned 3 times in the past 7 years. This has GOT TO STOP! We are fighting the boards decision to rezone 3010. Please stand with us at the Board Meetings and sign this petition as a show that we will not stand for this!
Honeywell International is proposing a "General Development Plan" (GDP) that will result in significant rezoning and increase development on 147-acre property off Columbia Turnpike in Morris township.
Currently proposed are a 250-ROOM HOTEL, CONTINUING CARE FACILITY, 311 RESIDENTIAL STACKED UNITS, a 416 ROOM RETIREMENT FACILITY and other buildings. Any rezoning will greatly change the character of the property which currently has 11 buildings all currently set back a good distance from Columbia Turnpike.
Honeywell's development plan is expected to 1: unsustainably increase traffic, 2: add incremental students to our public schools, 3: add incremental infrastructure expense to the Morris Township Budget and 4: place additional pressure on the environment in the area.
A logical result of the combination of all four will be to depress home prices in the area because very simply, it will no longer be viewed to be as desirable a place to live. This fast tracked redevelopment is not in our neighborhood's best interests and is not compatible with Morris Township's Master Plan or State endorsed plans (The Highland's act). The proposed changes in zoning to a mixed-use site will probably "debase the assessed value of Morris Township’s real estate base." Moreover rezoning through a "General Development Plan" will provide Honeywell with the means to redevelop the site over the next 20 years in ways not yet disclosed to the public and in a manner with which our community cannot foresee. As Tom Malman, a land use attorney with Day Pitney who represent Honeywell has stated (Daily record December 1, 2010) "We're testing the range of uses".
Please don't let Morris township become a test site for corporate greed and unwanted development. We urge you to sign this petition to preserve our community and to become personally involved in the process in which this proposal is moved forward.
• The committee states that NBCD 4250 (Vista Ridge and Falcon Oaks) need to be rezoned to Bagdad Elementary to relieve Whitestone Elementary School of overcrowding.
• Vista Ridge was not represented on the Attendance Boundary Committee.
• Whitestone Elementary currently is not over-crowded with 786 kids.
• The committee states that NBCD 4400 (neighborhood behind Lowe's) needs to move all of their students to Whitestone Elementary to relieve crowding at Winkley Elementary. Currently 31 students from the ESL program attend Whitestone. This will add 39 additional students to Whitestone Elementary School.
• Whitestone still will not be functionally over-crowded with the move of the additional 39 children from NBCD # 4400. However, by moving the 150 students from the NBCD 4250 (Vista Ridge and Falcon Oaks) to Bagdad Elementary it will make Bagdad over-crowded at close to 900 children in 2011-2012, having the highest enrollment in the district. Therefore, the most-consistently lowest-rated elementary school in the district will be over-populated next school year, and the student-to-teacher ratio will be negatively impacted.
• Meanwhile, Whitestone Elementary is projected to have only 637 students for 2011-2012.
• The zoning committee's presentation disclosed that 210 students currently transfer out of Bagdad, which is higher than the number of children that live in NBCD #4250.
• Page 5 of the committee's recommendation shows that after four short years, Bagdad's enrollment will be well over capacity at a whopping 1047 students. Meanwhile, Whitestone is projected to be at only 765 students in 2015.
• LISD states that in 2015 they expect to open a new elementary school, shifting students around again and rezoning Vista Ridge once again.
• Vista Ridge Parents have made up a significant number of Whitestone Volunteers and PTA Board Members for six years, which will end if our students are moved to another school. We will not be able to reap the benefits of our hard work by leaving a school we have vested so much into.
• Vista Ridge will experience a decline in property values due to the zoning of our neighborhood to a school with a long history of poor performance
• It is not in the best interest of the children to transfer them from a school at which they are currently successful and feel safe, to a traditionally low-scoring school in a possible attempt to bolster test scores. The children of NBCD 4250 have been thriving at Whitestone. Studies show that moving children repeatedly to different schools effects their academic development, social development, sense of security and behavior.
• Simply enforcing the existing attendance zones, and not allowing an exorbitant amount of kids to transfer out, would provide relief to Plain and Whitestone, thereby avoiding the need to displace happy and thriving children from the school they are zoned for.
• The numbers just don't add up. There is still room for NBCD 4250 to stay at Whitestone!
On February 26, 2010, Safeway supermarket closed/moved their store from the Mount Claire Junction Shopping center, therefore, leaving the South West Baltimore community in need of a full service pharmacy.
There are no full service pharmacies in a 5mile radius of the Hollins Market Community. It will benefit the general welfare of the Hollins Market Community and nearby neighbors to have a full service retail pharmacy in the community.
Pharmacare Pharmacy has answered the need of the community by bringing their pharmacy to the first floor of 1100 West Pratt street, Baltimore City, 21223. A pharmacy located at 1100 West Pratt 1st floor will: 1) Bring more business opportunities 2) Bring new Jobs and have a positive impact on the community.
We need your support to rezone the first floor of 1100 West Pratt Street. By signing this petition, together we send a strong message to Baltimore City Council, Board of Municipal and Zoning Appeals and Hollins Market Roundhouse Association that says not only do we support the rezoning of 1100 West Pratt 1st floor, but we encourage new businesses to bring new jobs to our communities.
The City of Cottleville Planning and Zoning Commission is conducting a public hearing on April 7, 2010 at 7:00pm to review a request from Twin Eagles, LLC to rezone Lots M7 through M11 of "The Courtyards at Harmony Ridge" and the Future Development Parcel on plat “The Lofts at Harmony Ridge, a Condominium” recorded under PB 45 PG 303 for use as multi-family residential development and commercial development.
If approved, this will allow Twin Eagles, LLC to build a multi-story apartment/condo complex in the same area as the courtyards, adjacent to current homeowners.
This land was intended for courtyard homes, not a multi-story building, and goes against everything we were told this community would be when we bought our homes. Rezoning this land would have an immensely negative effect on the quality of life in the neighborhood.
In 2002, legislation was passed that is now being used as an excuse to rezone properties that are currently zoned as the "A-rated" Gulf Coast High School into the substandard Title 1 "D,F and now C-rated" Golden Gate High School which has a proven history via publically-obtainable information of being a dangerous place for anyone due to gang activity, violence, crime, drugs, and a documented history of poor outcomes with regards to academics on a myriad of measures, also as published and obtainable.
Of course, the harm and detriment of such a rezoning to our children is not acceptable, as their futures, if not their very lives, are at stake. But also, we realize that there are other important factors at stake. Whether we have children or not, as certainly many of us owning property, land, investment(s) and/or homes in the aforementioned areas do not have children at all, or have children not of the high school age, each and every one of us realizes the detrimental devaluation this proposed rezoning would cause, ultimately adding insult to injury in a world of economic hardship.
We, the people mentioned above, will be educating and passing along the knowledge of harm and loss with the goal of obtaining every aforementioned owner involved with this cause - the cause to rightfully sustain what we've chosen to purchase with our hard-earned dollars; and, not to have any party or parties infringe upon our rights to sustain the value of our dollars.
The City od Norfolk is trying to rezone property located at 115 E. Liberty Street. The property is currently zoned as Commercial and they are trying to rezone it to Residential for the purpose of building eight (8) single family homes.
The rezoning of this property will prevent the future expansion of New Hope United Church of Christ.
Deep Creek High School is suffering!
Curriculum is suffering!

RZ-05-2008 - Conley and Maxie Booth, Owner/Applicant: Request a Rezoning from RP, Rural Preservation (with a density of one dwelling unit per ten acres of land) to M-1, Industrial (with no specified density), on tax map #94-A-6A, 94-13-1, 94-13-2, consisting of 23.534 acres, more or less. This property is located on the west side of Route 654 (Signboard Road), approximately ¼ mile north of Route 652 (Ruther Glen Road), Reedy Church Voting District.
Proposed Use: Offices/Warehouses. The 2006 – 2026 Comprehensive Plan identifies this area as Agricultural Preservation with a density of one dwelling unit per twenty-five acres of land.
We the undersigned citizens of Glenvar and Roanoke County respectfully request that the proposed rezoning and special permit request by Adam's and English Construction be denied.
It is the belief of the undersigned that the proposed Asphalt Plant will have a "minimal adverse impact" on the neighborhoods, schools, daycare, churches, and the retirement community.
As your constituents, we oppose the Adam's Asphalt Plant with the good intentions of an environment free of noise, emissions, and cumulative impacts to the Glenvar Community and our families.
We ask that you, the Roanoke County Board of Supervisor's, deny this proposal for rezoning.
In 2008 the Washington Renaissance Faire acquired a 206 acre site in Belfair, Washington. It is our hope to have it ready for use by August 2009.
We are currently working on conversion and rezoning the property and would like signatures on this petition to show the Mason County Commissioners that the Faire is wanted and supported in Mason County and throughout the Northwest.
Our goal is to bring the highest quality family entertainment, through a combination of theater, living history, entertainment as well as education. Eight stages include jousting, dancing, music, magic, juggling, royals, comedy, pirates, history, games, fun and more. We have 100 merchants selling their handcrafted wares and many varieties of food and fare.
We, the undersigned residents of Chateau Jon Subdivision, oppose the rezoning
and development of the 6 acre property located on Hatchell Lane Section 30,
T6S, R3E, G.L.D., City of Denham Springs for the following reasons:
1. Traffic impact: with a Junior High School, a large church, surrounding
neighborhoods and businesses, the traffic would be such that it could endanger
the lives of the many children that walk to and from school. Furthermore, with
Hatchell Lane being a two laned road, it would cause significant difficulty at the
intersections of Centerville and Hatchell as well as Hwy 190 and Hatchell, both
precarious intersections today.
2. By opposing this rezoning request, it will maintain the overall appearance
of Hatchell lane which is comprised of primarily single-family homes. By
allowing multi-family housing it will compromise the integrity of the surrounding
areas and could potentially reduce the value of surrounding properties.
3. Is there any place within the city limits of Denham Springs in which
there is multi-family housing?

We are Albemarle county residents opposed to the county adding high density developement while the area infrastructure will not support it.
Increasing the area density will result in a higher population and a greater tax burden on our current county residents.
The area's current infrastructure cannot support the almost 5,000 units and the traffic problems they will bring.
As a result, and most importantly, an increase such as the one being proposed for Biscuit Run will have a grave impact on the quality of life of all Albemarle County residents.
The Grand Forks City residents below are against the rezoning application Z54 for the purpose of rezoning the present R4 and R2 neigborhoods to the north and/or east of the University of North Dakota, (the area between 1st Avenue North and 10th Avenue North and the area between Columbia Road North and North 20th Street) on 6.583 acres located at the northeast intersection of Mars Hill Road and Burnt Hickory Road to the proposed suburban condominium zoning.
We are against this application due to concerns over spot zoning precedent; where one condominium is allowed more can follow, impact on our roads; we contend that 28 units regardless of age restriction will impact more than the current residential zoning, and the overall concern over the enforcement of the senior restriction and the resulting impact on our schools and roads.
Stop the Rezoning of the Creekview Neighborhood.
This land has been agricultural and recently bought and an application for rezoning was applied for.
This petition is to request a meeting with County Commissioner Jan Platt, Rhonda Storm, and Mr. Carter White of the Zoning Department. We would like to appeal the recent zoning of Property at 5903 Edina St. in Wimauma from RSC-6 to RSC-5 (MH). Many residents within the 250 feet boundary of the property were not notified of the rezoning at the above address. The rezoning is not indicative of zoning changes for the community.
