Luke Robinson started this petition to City of Melissa and

 

There will be a public hearing on March 11th, 2021 at 7pm in Melissa City Hall to determine if a developer will be allowed to build apartments by rezoning land set aside for small commercial. The developer is trying to purchase the land on the northeast corner located at Melissa Rd and 75.  This land is between the Country Ridge neighborhood and the Melissa Cemetery.  Apartments are a strain on schools, they effect home values nearby, increase traffic, increase crime, and generally do not provide a net benefit to the citizens of Melissa.

These apartments will have a large negative impact on the surrounding neighborhoods-  The multi-story buildings will tower over nearby housing and create safety concerns for nearby citizens.  Not to mention the loss of privacy, aesthetics, effects on property values, strain on our schools, and ruin the small town feel Melissa residents enjoy.   

We ask our City Council to not allow this land to be rezoned for apartments and keep Melissa looking like Melissa!
