Say No to Grosse Pointe Hotel Proposals

This petition had 821 supporters

This petition is to let the City of Grosse Pointe know we oppose moving forward on the submitted proposal for the construction of a hotel and adjacent parking structure in the Village.

In an effort to continue rapidly expanding occupancy in the village, proper care has not been taken in investigating how the years of construction and subsequent business would affect neighboring businesses, parking accommodations for residents trying to access other village businesses, pedestrian and automobile traffic, not to mention creating what some would consider an eyesore for residents.

Additionally, the idea of situating a hotel which creates a constant turnover of people along with significant traffic in such close proximity to a preschool, a dance studio, an elementary school and the tot lot is cause for concern.

I have no vested interest in this decision, I am simply a concerned resident. I believe while there is absolutely a potentially appropriate plan and place for a hotel in the Pointes, this proposal is not that. I want to see our community stay safe, attractive, walkable and family friendly as these are the qualities that drew myself and many other families to Grosse Pointe over other residential areas in Southeast Michigan.

The city's page regarding the proposal can be viewed here.

Some additional commentary on the subject can be found here and here.
