Why this petition matters

Started by Anna Davidson

Hello Pittsboro Neighbors,

It's hard for any of us to keep up with the pace of development happening in Pittsboro. This petition is seeking to ask the Town of Pittsboro, and the developers seeking to change zoning on Park Street to commercial without a development plan submitted, to slow down the process, and address known problems with drainage, and high traffic flow to the west side of town. The property proposed for development is adjacent to a flood plane, and at the entrance to a family neighborhood with a high volume of walking, children, and elderly residents. The developers are seeking to go around the planning process by getting the property zoning changed. It's up to us to raise our voice and let developers know that they must take civic planning into consideration. We need sidewalks. We need controlled water flow. But most of all, we need the time to understand what a change in zoning means. The change to commercial zoning within our established neighborhood is premature, at best.
