City of Ocoee Commissioners: Stop the rezoning of Park Place (Skorman Development Corp)
There are numerous reasons to support this petition against the rezoning of Park Place from commercial to residential:-
Noise - The noise from the Turnpike will hardly make the apartments 'high end' and who will want to live right next to the busy road/overlooking it.
Traffic - apartments will cause more traffic congestion at school time, especially in the mornings when it is impossible to drive from one end of Maguire Road to the other without constant stopping due to the amount of traffic.
House Prices - the values of our homes will be affected, this has been confirmed by two local realtor companies. The value will be reduced immediately $5-10k and over time 5-10 years the house prices will be heavily affected if the apartments are not upkept.
Crime - there is a threat of more crime with apartment complexes.
Schools - more apartments will lead to yet more children attending the local schools which are already near full capacity if not over capacity, this could affect their learning.
