Please help keep Ridge Road safe!

Please consider signing this petition to stop the Pettinaro Shopping Center entrance on Ridge Road. This Pettinaro proposal will expand a portion of Ridge into a six lane mega road serving as the main and only entrance to the giant Pettinaro Center that is located at the intersection of Ridge and Route 202. This Center will have over 1,000 parking spaces, hundreds of square feet with more strip mall stores, restaurants, and at least one, if not more, big box store. Additionally, this proposal entails that 18-wheeler trucks would have to travel exclusively on Ridge road to complete deliveries. As of now, Ridge Road is already heavily traveled and the addition of these large trucks and more traffic on this rural road will pose a danger to all local travelers including the over ten schools buses that carry over 100 students to public and private schools throughout the day.
Let's ask Pettinaro and Concord Township and all who would want to know how we feel to please consider the health, safety, and well-being of all residents and those who travel on or near Ridge Road. Additionally, we must ask Pettinaro Construction to review the current state of traffic as opposed to when it was studied nine years ago and have them move the shopping center entrance to route 202, where all the other Concord shopping centers' entrances are located. While we know the land is zoned commercial, no one expected the entrance being on Ridge with such significant road changes into a huge shopping center that would come within a few hundred feet to residential land. The entrance on Ridge Road was determined by a full traffic study completed in 2008. How many hundreds of square feet of retail, restaurants, and more has come into our area since 2008? How many additional projects have been approved and how many are to come? The traffic study and plans were done long before the rapid increase in development over the last 8 years and we have seen the tremendous increases in traffic and development since that time.
Please join me and others and sign this petition to show Pettinaro how much we care about the future safety of all and are looking to prevent the dangers that this outdated proposal will bring to all who call this beautiful area home. Thank you for signing and caring about our community's future.
