Pensacola City Council : Vote "No" on Rezoning Cordova Park from Residential to Commercial (C-1) for Dollar General or Any Special Interest Group.

      Keith Weidner

      Pensacola, FL

Dollar General wants to build a 9,000 SQF retail store at the intersection of Spainish Trail and Summit.  This neighborhood is primarily residential. A high volume retail discount dollar store is incompatible with the character of Cordova Park. Hundreds of Pensacola residents have organized in a matter of days to oppose rezonning this neighborhood to prevent Dollar General from building. By signing this petition you send a message to the City Council and Dollar General that you do not want Cordova Park to be rezoned commercial for Dollar General or any other special interest group.

    1. Delay Tactics: Don't fall for this trick!

      Keith Weidner
      Petition Organizer

      At the request of the attorney representing the church who wants to sell the property to Dollar General, the council meeting was postponed. Dollar General and the Church want you to forget about this issue or become disinterested or complacent. Do not let that tactic work on you.

      The Pensacola City Council will vote on this issue on February 13, 2014. Make sure you let the city council know you have not forgotten about this issue.

      because this is not a business district it is a residential area

      We believe that residential zones should not be tampered with to put any business into...people have lived in this area and love it for being quiet, safe, and "neighborly." Letting a business into a neighborhood will bring down the values of each homeowners land, let traffic double/triple with hazards to the children and to the elderly! It is the responsibility of the city councilmen to maintain neighborhoods as safe, happy environments for the homeowners and their families to thrive! No to Dollar General in Cordova Park area! Not now, not ever!
