PLEASE STOP STEALTH DORMS & DORM DUPLEXES!

    1. Petition by

      Heritage Neighborhood Association

Stealth dorms and dorm duplexes are devastating neighborhoods and disrupting lives in Central and North Central Austin neighborhoods. We implore the City Manager, the Mayor, and the City Council to take emergency action to stop this plague in our Central and North Central Austin Neighborhoods. The problem calls for emergency action. Too many lives are being devastated to defer action any longer.  Learn more at http://stopstealthdorms.com/

      Between 6 to 10 people live in the single family rent house across the street. I'm in EAST Austin and we are always the dumping ground but enough is enough. SINGLE FAMILY is supposed to mean something.

      Help maintain the quality of life in our neighborhood(s) by reducing automobile traffic, eliminating noise violations and mitigating unsightly trash build up due to a distorted occupancy of rental property.

      Austin's historic character is being overrun by kids that could care less about neighborhoods and families. Stealth dorms are a blight on neighborhoods and residents who take pride in their homes and neighborhoods.

      I think it's absolutely terrible to pay $7K taxes every year and not be able to park in front of my own home due to a stealth dorm. This was a three bedroom home divided into 5 rooms and is always filled with non related people who each have a significant other. There are 8 to 10 cars just from one home. I've even seen them block the elderly neighbor's driveway once.

      As a property owner, I am concerned about how crowded my alley is getting with cars and trash cans. I can barely get into my driveway! It's dangerous! Also, there are so many unfamiliar people walking through the alley at night, that is a big concern. It's destroying the safety and security of our block. This is not good for property owners in any way to be surrounded by these complexes with a dozen cars parked all around. Please do something before it's too late! Thank you, Monica McCrory
