WE NEED YOUR HELP! 

Please consider attending the next planning and zoning meeting on Dec. 17th, 2019  at 4:30 p.m. at City Hall to show your support and voice opposition or stand in solidarity with those opposing the  the large-scale, dozen + 15,000 square-foot warehouse development at the Southwest corner of Sjolander Rd. and i10. 

Help us preserve the residential area along Sjolander Rd. by saving this 58.7 acre lot from threats of this warehouse development.

Currently, several vacant warehouses stand off of Thompson Rd. and i10, and perhaps should serve as an example for the impending fate of this development if this proposal is approved.

This development is incompatible with the surrounding properties and is inconsistent with the residential area along Sjolander Rd. In-fact, there should not be such large-scale development so close to residential homes as it poses significant heavy traffic threats and flooding risks. There is insufficient road infrastructure that is not equipped to handle the dramatic increase in heavy through-traffic. Sjolander Rd. is narrow and does not allow for turn lanes, and nearby intersections area already heavily congested.

This area is also vulnerable to flooding. Fortunately, many homes have been spared from this 58.7 acre lot, as it retains water during major storms such as Hurricane Harvey, Tropical Storm Imelda and prevents flooding. Development on this tract is likely to impact water flow, acting as a barrier and causing water to drain off south into homes. 

Please consider signing this petition and voicing your concerns to the City of Baytown in opposition of this development! 

Help Keep Baytown Beautiful!
