Say NO to the proposed 680 unit manufactured home park on Goodman Rd.

This petition had 23 supporters

Last month this project was proposed for 987 units, and pulled from the agenda the day of the vote. It has been put back on the agenda for August with a change to 680 units. This is still simply too much for this location. This park is proposed for the old Pine Shadows golf course at 750 Goodman Rd, Lake Charles LA. It is directly across the street from Lake Caroline subdivision which is home to hundreds of families. Goodman Rd. is very small, dead end, with only one way in or out consisting of an overpass. It opens onto Opelousas St., which is also home to hundreds of residents, via a one way stop intersection. If anything blocks this intersection everyone is trapped on the other side. This area is already overpopulated and suffering from serious traffic issues including recent fatal accidents. In case of emergency, including hurricane evacuation, there is only one way out for every resident. This community is not only isolated by the existing roads, it is also locked in geographically with either the interstate or water on three sides. Our infrastructure cannot handle this type of massive development... roads, intersections, water and sewer, drainage.. none are suitable to support such a huge increase in population. If Calcasieu Parish desires a community of this size and type it needs to be placed in a suitable area with the infrastructure to support it. We are not against manufactured homes, nor new development.. we recently allowed an 80 unit park less than a mile away to be approved with no opposition.. but this is a project almost ten times the size and in the worst possible location. Last fall the planning and zoning board saw fit to deny a man camp less than a mile away because the proposed 2800 residents were too much for our area and would be too detrimental to the current taxpaying citizens who make this area their home.. this project could bring the same number or more. Please show your support and help us protect our community. Thank you.
