Dear Concerned Residents of Green Brook:
On behalf of Green Brook residents and local businesses, we urge you to add your name to this on-line petition. You may have heard that yet another commercial development has been proposed for the land between Lund Lane and Warrenville Road. The development will include a fitness center, a restaurant and a retail pad. Green Brook is already saturated with restaurants, gas stations and convenience stores. In fact, there is a gas station so close to the proposed development that a variance is required to approve its use. Further, the traffic for the U-turn at Warrenville Road and that coming down the mountain is already horrendous. Imagine the nightmare that an additional amount of cars would create. The proposed development would have about 700 parking spaces. There would be a new entrance/exit off Warrenville Road which we are concerned would create additional woes for residents.
In addition to the above concerns, we are extremely concerned about the risk of flooding to the south side of Route 22. The development cannot be created without the cutting down of thousands of trees. Without the benefit of those trees, we are confident that an area already prone to flooding will be exacerbated and that would be devastating to our community.
We urge you to sign this petition to at the very least scale back the scope of this project.
