Paul Claessen started this petition to Brevard County Commission

We, the residents of the Sawgrass Lakes community, a 900+ houses development directly west of the property that is seeking re-zoning, as well as other affected West Melbourne, Palm Bay and unincorporated County residents, are strongly opposed to the requested re-zoning. We oppose the building of a commercial RV/Boat storage facility for many reasons, including, but not limited to:

1. Landfill disturbance. The disturbance of unknown and possibly toxic content of the former, illegal landfill that makes up the parcel.
2. Traffic. Adding undue pressure to the already strained traffic situation on Norfolk Parkway, which is where the only ingress/egress point for the storage facility will be.
3. Lake pollution. Likely pollution of the lakes by runoff water from the storage facility.
4. Light Pollution. The creation of light pollution, an issue that the developers were unwilling to address in a Binding Development Plan.
5. Wildlife. Destroying an active wildlife environment amongst which is an important roosting place and habitat for birds and other wildlife.
6. Crime. The almost certain attraction of crime (break-ins), and the homeless seeking shelter.
7. Property values. The likely devaluation in property values for adjacent communities due to the above mentioned grievances.
