Stop the Stillwater Cove Greenway
This petition had 63 supporters
The current proposal to bring a public Greenway to the Stillwater Cove community in Madison in accordance with the West expansion and growth plan is not what our community wants or needs. We have seen the current plans and we petition you today to cancel the proposed greenway and walking path along the small streams through our existing community.
Stillwater Cove families purchased our homes in this area as a small reminder of country life with the natural beauty and privacy we all wanted. Had we known there was a greenway proposal to be in our backyard, many would have built elsewhere. Residents whom live along the Russell Branch in addition had to pay a $10,000 premium for the lot since it backed up to the stream. We viewed it as a nice investment to have a little bit of privacy which we were assured by the developer. Constructing this greenway through our already existing neighborhood, directly in our backyards where our young children play is unacceptable.
To go forth with this greenway along this small stream would be devastating to our community. Not only would it be a total loss of investment but also a safety and security issue. It would bring the unwanted increase of traffic into our neighborhood with the proposed soccer fields, pond/sediment runoff, and dog parks. We don't want our Madison community to be affected like Creekwood subdivision in Huntsville after the creation of the Indian Creek Greenway. The Indian Creek Greenway brought with it crime to the residents of Creekwood that they didn't experience before. Crimes of theft, vandalism, solicitation, and trespassing have become all too common to that neighborhood. We do not want this in Stillwater Cove, we do not want a greenway through our community.
We hope you will consider removing Stillwater Cove from consideration of this distasteful encroachment.
