No to the Rezone
This petition made change with 1,086 supporters!
Concerned Milford citizens are rallying together to reject a request to rezone the following parcels in north Milford Township from Suburban Residential and Restricted Office to Single Family Residential. This change would pave the way for an out of town builder to put in 178 high density homes in the area along the west side of Milford Rd spanning from the River Oaks subdivision to Rowe Rd. This rezoning would be in direct opposition to the Milford Master Plan that had passed review just a year ago. Concerns voiced by residents include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Safety concerns regarding increased traffic along Milford Rd
- Increased traffic on Peters Rd and through downtown at rush hour, with no way to re route
- Destruction of natural wetlands
- Ability of infrastructure in surrounding north Milford area to support an additional 178 new homes
- Loss of rural character of the area
- Setting a precedent for other developers to build high density neighborhoods in all of Milford Township
Now is the time to let the Planning Commission and the township Board to hear from Milford residents! We are off to a great start, but need to keep up our efforts. Please consider signing this online petition and sharing with as many people as possible. Contrary to what was previously posted, citizens in surrounding areas (Highland!) are also able to sign the petition and are encouraged to do so.
All persons of voting age in a household are eligible to submit an electronic signature, although they need to each be done under a different email address. If you have already signed a petition or have personally emailed Tim Brandt, there is no need to also complete this petition; your opposition has been noted.
We do ask that in the LAST NAME section, you include your mailing address after your last name (e.x. Smith 100 Main Street Milford MI). For privacy reasons, the address information that is collected below the name field does not get passed on to either the creator of the petition or the person the petition is being sent to and we need to capture this information for the township to substantiate the residency of petitioners.
With your help, we'll be able to retain that small town feel that is Milford!
