Regarding the proposed Fort Bend County Women’s Center, through Magnolia Partners I, LP, rental housing development at the northeast corner of Skinner Lane and West Bellfort/0205 R Hunter, Tract 1 and 6, we the undersigned are firmly opposed to such low income property at this location, for the below listed reasons.

Fort Bend County Women's Center is planning to build a 104 unit low income housing project.  This matter was not brought to the attention of area residents until right before deadlines for the proposal was looming.

Issues that have not been addressed by the Women's Center:

1. Zero data on this type housing project.

2. Only about half of the units are for the women and children. The other half to displaced agencies from Houston, based on income.

3. The lack of public notification and no noticeable posting of the land use.

4. Size of the development is misrepresented and still not disclosed.

5. Overcrowded schools – Adolphus elementary is already at capacity.

6. Overcrowded roads with Skinner and (part of) West Belfort being one lane.

7. Too many apartment complexes being built in the area that are not fully occupied.

8. Low income housing being built next to a toll road.

9. No specific set of rules stated for residents already drafted and no punishments for violation for said rules.

10. Flooding of the area and nearby roads.

11. Lack of transportation, sidewalks, and mass transit.

12. It is a disclosed location where abusers will know where their victims are which could cause security and safety issues for our homes, children, and community.

13. The only people that will benefit from this are the developers.

14. Danger to the children in the neighborhood from the extra traffic from husbands/spouses searching for their families.

15. No such low income rental properties are currently in the nearby surrounding area. Properties fronting the east edge of the existing tracts are deed restricted, acreage lots with property values up to approximately $750,000. Larger acreage lots are along the western edge. This high density project would negatively impact the country aspect along Skinner Road.

16. Concerns about future expansion or other support for low income families.

17. Deterioration of our LMF community and the decrease of property values is a valid concern.
