Say NO to 360 unit apartment complex on Paradise Lake Rd.

Say No to Project No. 16-120252 SPA. As concerned residents in regards to the proposed land use, Project No. 16-120252 SPA, I am writing to officially object to the use of land detailed in said proposal.

Paradise Lake Rd. (PLR) can not take any more people, at peak times traffic backs up past 99th ave se. PLR is ALREADY unsafe for emergencies. Maltby is losing our fire dept. A 360 unit apartment complex would completely shut down, block, render PLR unusable at the most critical stretch.

We do not have the space in the schools of Maltby to accommodate a 360 unit apartment complex. Maltby and Hidden River have already expanded into mobile units to accommodate current student load. This would definitely impact the student teacher ratio.

Anymore traffic on PLR will completely shut down function. The schools are not able to accommodate anymore children. The area of Maltby is already beyond peak capacity, a 360 unit complex would be devastating.

This will have a negative impact on traffic far beyond 522 and Paradise Lake Rd. This will also have a huge impact on 524 (Maltby Rd), Highway 9, Broadway, Ponderosa Acres neighborhood roads etc. 720 additional cars (that is the number of resident parking spots shown in the plans and permit) on our roads will cause extensive traffic snarls on all surface roads for several miles in all directions around this monstrous apartment complex.
