Petitioning Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs and 6 others

Orange County Board of Commissioners & OC Zoning Board: Oppose Zoning Change to convert River Of Life Church land to Commercial.


1. The existing Dellagio Town Center buildings are sufficient for our community, which has access to multiple shopping districts in every direction.
2. Increasing the volume of traffic in an area that is already over-run with vehicles, as West Sand Lake already is, adds a traffic safety hazard and inconvenience for residents and visitors in the immediate and surrounding area.
3. The proposed zoning changes are detrimental to neighboring residences, and will lower property values.
4. The commercial project will detract from the quiet enjoyment of our surrounding homes and neighborhood, and will add to urban sprawl in a traditionally residential area of Dr. Phillips currently prized for peaceful enjoyment by its residents and visitors.

Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs

District 6 Tiffany Moore Russell
We, the undersigned, voice our opposition to the zoning ordinance, which allows for replacement of a low density Church use with 30,000 s.f. of high density commercial use.

1. The existing Dellagio Town Center buildings are sufficient for our community, which has access to multiple shopping districts in every direction.
2. Increasing the volume of traffic in an area that is already over-run with vehicles, as West Sand Lake already is, adds a traffic safety hazard and inconvenience for residents and visitors in the immediate and surrounding area.
3. The proposed zoning changes are detrimental to neighboring residences, and will lower property values.
4. The commercial project will detract from the quiet enjoyment of our surrounding homes and neighborhood, and will add to urban sprawl in a traditionally residential area of Dr. Phillips currently prized for peaceful enjoyment by its residents and visitors.

We, the undersigned, ask that you vote against the zoning ordinance being considered by the Orange County Board of County Commissioners on March 12, 2013.
