Stop Rezoning for commercial use (convenience store and gas station)

This petition had 440 supporters

There is a non-local company trying to rezone the area for a gas station/convenience store/boat mechanic/storage unit all in one to the community.  The location presents a hazard as well as an eyesore as you enter Carolina Marina and the Knight – Brown Nature Preserve. The corner of Shelton Road and Ellisboro Rd is a high traffic area that is very congested in the summer months.  There are limited sightlines in one direction, multiple houses / driveways across the street, and an over 90 degree turn onto Shelton Rd that vehicles pulling boats already struggle with.  The lights from the place will shine through the night keeping people from sleeping and making it harder to get children to sleep.  The noise it will create will make it impossible to enjoy being at your house and the traffic will make it near impossible to exit the driveways around the area.  This will also be in close proximity to the new 100 acre park being constructed a few hundred yards away. There are already 3 boat storage facilities and 2 convenience stores along Ellisboro Rd. This is not bringing a particularly needed service to the community. The people in charge of this have forgone informing community members of the risks it will bring to them and their families especially since we are a community full of families with children.  Please sign and stop the building of another inconvenient nuisance to our area and help save the local businesses and land.
