Stop Commercial Restaurants in our Residential Neighborhoods

This petition had 233 supporters

You wouldn't want this proposed 9000 sq ft restaurant and banquet hall with a parking lot for 95 cars shown above in your residential neighborhood and neither do we.  It would be located among single family homes and adjacent to the C&O National Historic Park.  The developers are abusing the intent of the zoning code and our master plan by calling it a country inn.  If they are successful, your neighborhood could be next. 

If you don't want a restaurant or even a Hooters or a McDonalds in your back yard, please sign this Petition.  It asks the Montgomery County Council to stop this abuse by supporting a zoning amendment sponsored by Councilmembers Elrich, Hucker, Berliner, Katz, Rice, Leventhal and Reimer.  The zoning amendment would restrict country inns in R-200 residential neighborhoods throughout Montgomery County. 

We believe this project could have a negative environmental impact on the C&O National Historic Canal Park. Traffic is already a serious safety issue with illegal parking on both sides of MacArthur Blvd. on weekends.

Protect your neighborhood.  Please ask your friends to sign also.
