Prevent over development at Willow Point

Development in the Town of Webster has been happening at an unprecedented pace with little to no input from the community taken into consideration. The proposed development and construction of a five story building at Willow Point is one of the most recent examples of this. Not only would it visually impact the area and potentially lower property values of surrounding homes but the impact it will have on the community and it's resources is undeniable. 

This development in it's current form requires ten proposed zoning variances:

(i) Having a lot area of 3.8 acres where 5 acres is permitted pursuant to
Webster Town Code §225.13B(3)(c);

(ii) Having a building height of 5 stories where a maximum of 3 stories is
permitted pursuant to Webster Town Code §225-13B(3)(b);

(iii) Having a building length in excess of 250 feet which is not permitted
pursuant to Webster Town Code §225-13B(3)(d);

(iv) Having 30.4 units/acre where 8 units/acre is permitted pursuant to Webster
Town Code §225-13B(3) (e);

(v) Having a 50 foot setback to McEwen where 75 feet is required pursuant to
Webster Town Code §225-13B(3)(g);

(vi) Having a 25 foot setback to North Wing where 75 feet is required pursuant
to Webster Town Code §225-13B(3)(g);

(vii) Having an 8 foot setback to South Wing where 75 feet is required pursuant
to Webster Town Code §225-13B(3)(g);

(viii) Having 146 parking spaces where 196 spaces are required pursuant to
Webster Town Code §225-72B(2);

(ix) Having no overflow parking spaces where 25 spaces are required pursuant
to Webster Town Code §225-72B(5);

(x) Having a 50 foot buffer to building south wing where 100 feet is required
and a 40 foot buffer to the Parking where 100 feet is required pursuant to
Webster Town Code §225-13B(3)(a).

None of these variances alone meet the criteria of "Undue Hardship", which is the reason for which zoning variances are granted. Together these variances are borderline negligence. 

The Zoning Board of Appeals needs to deny the requested variances and the Town Planning Board needs to deny the application for this project.

If this proposed development is not approved there would be no adverse effect on the surrounding community or Webster as a whole. If the development of "Waterview at Willow Point" is approved and continues as planned it will mean decreased property values, increased traffic, increased stress on town infrastructure, and the continued destruction of the very fabric of what has made Webster a place where "Life is worth living".

I am asking for all of us to stand together, sign this petition, and make our voices heard.
