Christine Bobo started this petition to Henry County Board of Commissioners

Rezoning  the current area will significantly impact the quality of life in the area from residential agriculture to mixed use  and C-1 neighbor hood commercial development which would have the potential to put up to 16 dwelling units on 1 acre! This means that that immediate area could end up with apartments and town homes as there is approx. 300 acres in area subject to rezoning if this is approved. The majority of people who moved to this area did so for the rural feel of the area knowing that certain conveniences were just a bit farther however we accepted that. A change in zoning in a low density residential area will ruin what we all moved here for, with no infrastructure to support it  will significantly increase everyone's commute time to and from work areas outside of Henry county area to the highway even local commutes to school and church areas. Increases the air pollution as cars sit in traffic, puts a burden on an already short manned first responders system.  With other developments in works already will  add approximately 900 homes in less than a 5 mile radius. This will all happen before the projected widening of HWY 81 which is 6 years down the road.  We are again on a path to reactive growth not proactive growth .
