Luke Riddle started this petition to City of Tallmadge Board of Zoning Appeals

     The City of Tallmadge is currently considering a change to the residential zoned area on East Ave at the Ripley Farm. If approved, this will bring a commercial, retail development into a residential neighborhood. This would not be a good idea and would have a negative effect on the surrounding area and the city as a whole.

     We are concerned for the safety of residents that live in the surrounding neighborhoods. The families on Washburn Rd, Parker Ln, East Ave will see an increase in traffic to already busy residential areas where our children play. This would endanger the safety and privacy of our families.

     We are concerned about the increase in crime rates and the decrease in property values in the area. A retail shopping center is sure to bring with it more crime and negatively impact the value of the surrounding land.

     This is not what the citizens of Tallmadge want in their city. According to information on the City of Tallmadge website, 68% of residents say the greatest land use problem facing the city is commercial areas expanding into residential.

     Please join us in signing the petition to be presented to the City of Tallmadge to show them that this is not what the citizens want.
