Oakwood Forest Huntersville NC started this petition to Town Board Huntersville Board of Commissioners

Bowman Development Group wants to tear down the LAST Huntersville Wetlands along Asbury Chapel Road (which runs into South Prong Clarke Creek), to put up a typical cookie-cutter 93 home development. This developer is responsible for destruction of many areas of beauty & nature in Huntersville.


Please sign this petition. Let the Huntersville Board of Commissioners know the wetlands on Asbury Chapel and Autumncrest Road deserve protection! 

These are LAST wetlands in our beautiful town!

The wetlands deserve our protection; they are a natural habitat for trees, wildlife and birds.

"Wetlands are among the most productive ecosystems in the world, comparable to rain forests and coral reefs." - EPA Website

Tearing down the Asbury Chapel area in the neighborhood will increase traffic on an already dangerous road, pollution, noise and increases the risk of flooding in an already flood-prone area.

"Wetlands within and downstream of urban areas are particularly valuable, counteracting the greatly increased rate and volume of surface water runoff from pavement and buildings. The holding capacity of wetlands helps control floods.

Wetlands store carbon within their plant communities and soil instead of releasing it to the atmosphere as carbon dioxide. Thus wetlands help to moderate global climate conditions." - EPA Website

If Bowman Development Group get their way, this will set a precedent on all other wildlife areas in Transitional Rural zones, that were originally created by our Town to preserve nature!

Help us save these beautiful wetlands and ecosystem by signing your name to this petition!

Thanks so much!
