No to the rezoning of 602/606 W. HWY 54 in Durham and unreasonable 54 development

This petition had 290 supporters

We the undersigned residents of neighborhoods in Southwest Durham, NC and other concerned community members hereby oppose the rezoning of 602 and 606 W. NC Highway 54, Durham, NC 27713 by Envision Homes, LLC, a developer based in Raleigh, NC. 

The proposed site for the 25 town homes is in an area surrounded by single family homes.  Although we are not opposed to all development, we are opposed to development that is not in character with a surrounding community and that creates environmental concerns.  

We also oppose the increased traffic and noise in surrounding neighborhoods and on Highway 54, the increased light pollution into homes, and the potential damage/pollution that could occur to the creek bed flowing into Jordan Lake despite the developer's best efforts. Allowing a developer to clear '80% of the forest and construct 25 town homes' with the hope of fostering even more development on HYW 54 would be detrimental to citizens in the surrounding area.

We request that the city denies or postpones the rezoning of this property until a mindful development is put in place.

 Thank you for your help.
