Sign this petition to oppose the proposed development on 2880 Liberty Road*! The development plan calls for 155 housing units to be built on 23 acres of former cropland with a natural wetland component that feeds into the adjacent Stratford State Forest Preserve. 

High-density housing development is sheer out of place in this sub-rural area. Delaware township zoning code states that the township in its entirety must be low-density and preserve the topography of the land, wetlands, and watersheds. High-density housing would negatively impact the water quality of Stratford’s stream, wetlands, and vernal pools. The additional traffic, noise, light, and air pollution from this type of development would be detrimental to the delicate ecosystems at work within the preserve as well as to the unique species who depend on them.

We are not against development but want it developed sustainably and using ecologically appropriate methods. We want to preserve open and green space, help restore wetland, and make sure that any further development is done with regenerative, innovative, and conservation-oriented practices. At a minimum, an environmental analysis, an anti-degradation flow study, and an environmental impact statement should be presented prior to any development on this parcel.

Let us do everything we can to preserve and enhance the unique quality of this parcel —a quality synonymous with Stratford State Forest Preserve itself. This 236-acre preserve has not only improved the land, water, and biodiversity, but also education and enjoyment to our residents, for which no price can be named.
