STOP The Confluence!!!

This petition had 2,381 supporters

City Council Members of Chesapeake,

     We are declaring our opposition to "The Confluence," a potential high-density development project in the Grassfield area.  We are unified in our position against 292 apartments, 50 townhouses, 202 single family houses, and a Chesapeake Regional Hospital "medical facility" situated on approximately 119 acres known as the Lindsay Farm.  We believe a vote of "NO" is necessary to:

1-restore citizen confidence in our City's leadership and validate our desire to protect our chosen lifestyle and quality of life

2-respect the Level of Service Standard for school capacities by not overwhelming Grassfield Elementary School and an already burdened school system

3-validate citizen concerns about the impacts of increased traffic and congestion

4-legitimize citizen statements and concerns about the increased threat of flooding from the Lindsay Canal

5-support current homeowners in the area by considering the impact on the value of their homes 

6- protect the historic, hand-made Lindsay Canal recommended for designation on the historical register

7-avert further environmental degradation of the Elizabeth River and its tributaries

     We implore you to remember your current constituency and support US by voting "NO" on The Confluence!
