Ardmore neighbors are urged to come to the June 4, 2018 Winston-Salem City Council meeting, 7 PM, City Hall, Rm. 230, 101 N. Main St., Winston-Salem, NC, to stop the rezoning of the Ardmore goat farm property (Ebert Property W-3363 Rezoning from RS9 7.67 acres to 30,125 Office Space with 2 buildings and 32 townhome unit).

This zoning case is violating the SW Area Plan by introducing two office buildings into the development of the farm.  It is critical that no office building, which are considered a form of commercial development, be allowed in a residential zoned area.  Why?  For the following reasons:

  •  This is a significant intrusion of commercial building into the middle of a strictly residential stretch of Silas Creek Parkway.  It will actually divide the residential areas of Miller Street and EIbert Street.
  •  It will more than triple the amount of traffic trips per day on residential Ebert Street with 1,088 generated by 2 office buildings through just 1 driveway. (186 trips per day generated by  townhomes using a second driveway. TRAFFIC DELAYS will occur at Hawthorne and Ebert as well as Silas Creek and Ebert.  
  •  The townhomes are poorly planned with questionable community greenspace and no connectivity to the tree save green space area.
  • Poor presales of townhomes could theoretically result in a request to rezone the rest of the land to LO-S resulting in 1,709 trips per day ALL WITH ONLY 2 DRIVEWAYS onto Ebert Street.  NO exit onto Silas Creek Parkway.
  • If the developer considers this a compromise development, he should in good faith state up front that he will to build townhomes simultaneously to the office buildings.  Otherwise there are no guarantees that he will ever build the townhomes.
