Stop the apartment building/development on Alexander Rd in Duanesburg, NY
This petition had 172 supporters
Duanesburg is a rural town. The addition of the proposed 4-unit townhouse complex on Alexander Road will change the atmosphere and very essence of the town in which we live.
It will increase traffic on Alexander Road (a road readily utilized for middle school and high school athletes to train on), lower property values, and detract from the overall setting of single-family, owner-occupied homes. This is especially concerning if the units become rental or low-income housing. The concern is ALSO that the development of this property on Alexander Road will NOT STOP at this single 4-unit building (the developer, Charlie Rhoades, said that expansion of this apartment conglomeration is part of the long-term plan).
Duanesburg homeowners and taxpayers settle in this burg because the neighborhood is quiet, family oriented, and on the outskirts of suburbia. Apartment units would be an exceptionally bad idea and would ruin the character of the area, along with devaluing the existing properties that homeowners have put so much into.
Multi-family housing was NOT permissible in the residentially zoned (R2) area of Alexander Road when many of us purchased our homes in Duanesburg prior to the 2015 residential/agricultural zoning amendment. For this reason, we strongly oppose the idea of townhouses on Alexander Road.
We need to band together and make enough noise to STOP the proposed apartment development on Alexander Road. Please sign this petition if you are OPPOSED to apartments being built on Alexander Road
