Defer re-zoning petition 2013-094 until our area plan is complete!
This petition made change with 627 supporters!
For years the people living in the Prosperity Hucks Area have been dreaming of a place they could live, work and play together. A place where we, as a community, can gather for local events, shop, dine and enjoy the area where we live. A place we can be proud to call a part of our community.
Recently, the City Planning Department heard the communities’ cries to make changes to the area plan, which would allow more input and community consensus. With the area plan still being in 'draft' form and set to be completed by the end of this year, we urge City Council to defer re-zoning petition 2013-094 until the area plan is complete.
Re-zoning petition 2013-094 calls for a large grocery store with 292 apartments on the largest piece of land we have left to build that dream. The extra cars, people and lack of shops, restaurants or green space leave the residents of this community wondering...where is our dream?
The City Council's decision will affect this area for the next 20-40 years. Why allow a plan to be pushed through that is inconsistent with the current plan when we could wait 4-6 months and align our dreams with the new area plan that is based on the communities input?
Do you want more apartments? More traffic? Over-crowded schools? Lower property values? More crime?
What can you do?
