Christian Alexander started this petition to City of Corpus Christi and

I oppose the rezoning and creation of townhomes pursuant to case no. 0221-03.  Our city officials, especially our council member, Gil Hernandez, should intervene in the rezoning, or we will ensure they do not receive our vote in 2022.

Upshot:  An out-of-state investment firm is trying to rezone and build 17 townhomes without a height restriction in our neighborhood, bordering Slough and Ametrine Road.  This would increase traffic, population density and drive down real estate prices.  The location would be out of place, no matter how nice the construction.  Single family dwellings or a city park are the only acceptable construction for this location in our community.  

*** Ensure you attend the city meeting on Wednesday, March 17, at 5:30 p.m. at the Corpus Christi City Council Chambers, 1201 Leopard Street. ***

       Cardinal Investment Group wants to build 17 townhomes behind Kolda Elementary school on Slough Road and Ametrine Road.  They are seeking to rezone the plot of land bordering Ametrine and Slough for this purpose, and eliminate height restrictions for construction.  Cardinal Investment Group is an out-of-state investment group from Arkansas, and has no stake in the local implications to our community in Neuces County, District 5, precinct 125.  The location of these townhomes would drive real estate prices down for the investments of single family homes. 

While Cardinal Investments Holdings, LLC, does not have a stake in our local community.  Mr. Gil Hernandez, our city council representative, does.  I doubt he would like townhomes with transient residents and increased traffic built 300 feet from his family’s backyard, thereby reducing the property value and quality of life. While Corpus Christi is a growing city, our neighborhoods behind Kolda Elementary School have been bogged down with sluggish construction on Rodd Field Road, and increased traffic by creating Ametrine road and connecting Brooke and Slough.  The increased traffic and speeding is a danger to our children and quality of life, and the city has done little to mitigate it.  A single family dwelling is the appropriate zoning of this lot, as our area cannot stand another increase of population density.

I oppose the rezoning and creation of townhomes pursuant to case no. 0221-03, and pledge to ensure our city council is held responsible for any unwise decisions by my vote.  Does the city council care more for their constituents, or investors?  Show up on March 17th to make your voice heard at the City Council Chambers!
