Because South Norfolk has more rental properties than all the boroughs in the City of Chesapeake;

Because a concentration of rental in this retail area is detrimental to future commercial growth;

Because a concentration of rentals in this location will increase school enrollments at already over-crowded area schools;

Because the project's proximity to the school and adjacent neighborhood is unsightly;

Because the increased population will additionally burden the community's aging infrastructure;

Becase of a general lack of confidence in the proposing company.


We the undersigned, respectfully request that the Planning Commission and Chesapeake City Council oppose the current application from Dominion Life Neighborhood Redevelopment & Revitalization LLC to rezone Southgate Plaza to the Shoppes at SoNo, from B2 Retail to B5 Retail/Residential with a change from a 35 ft building to a 75 ft building.
