Petition to Leon Pinkett

Keep the Clipper Mill PUD

This petition requests that the current Clipper Mill Planned Unit Development (PUD) remain in effect. The Clipper Mill community is a designated Office-Residential Planned Unit Development (PUD).  The PUD, which took effect in August 2003, has helped to guide and govern the development of the entire 17-acre Clipper Mill campus.  The PUD, passed by the Baltimore City Council and approved by the Mayor, is a legally binding document. The new owners of the commercial properties, ValStone Partners LLC (aka VS Clipper Mill), are now requesting that the Baltimore City Council repeal and remove the PUD.  If this repeal is successful, the zoning designation of the entire Clipper Mill campus will automatically change to Transit Oriented Development (TOD2). A TOD2 zoning designation does not require ValStone, or any subsequent developer, to preserve and maintain the historic nature of the Clipper Mill community.  The Clipper Mill campus is an invaluable asset to the City. The development of Clipper Mill, and the development it has spawned throughout the Mill Valley, has thus far been done carefully and thoughtfully, with priority given to preserving the manufacturing and mill heritage of this area.   Removing the PUD and adopting a TOD2 zoning designation would allow for the possibility of insensitive and over-development of the commercial properties of Clipper Mill.  While ValStone owns the commercial properties of Clipper Mill, it is the residents of Clipper Mill who are the largest stakeholders. The current tax assessment value of the Clipper Mill residential properties is approximately $50,000,000+/-, and the contribution made to the City’s tax base is significant.   Action Petitioned For:  We simply want the City to retain the existing and legally binding PUD. We the undersigned are individuals who are urging the Baltimore City Council to protect the unique history and character of Clipper Mill.  We oppose the repeal of the PUD.

Save Glenmoor

Glenmoor's Future is In Our Hands Glenmoor is an 18-hole golf course built in 1968 in the heart of South Jordan. For the past year, the future of the Golf Course has been in limbo. A judge's order has forced the owners of Glenmoor to put the property up for sale. In late 2017, the City Council approved a resolution providing notice of a change of designation for the land the golf course sits on, but an official vote on the rezoning has not yet taken place. What's going to happen to Glenmoor? Nothing is set in stone yet. But it is potentially going to be sold for housing development. Could it be high density housing units? Even if you don’t play golf, this could have a huge impact on your community. This is where the residents of South Jordan who love the Glenmoor Golf Course come in.  ​What can you do to help? By signing this petition, you can help to let the South Jordan City Council know how important it is to you to preserve this beautiful open space for future generations. Let's make sure the City Council knows how much you want Glenmoor Golf Course to be saved. What does the golf course mean to you? What memories have you and your family made there? What outcome do we hope to achieve?  Our goal for the Save Glenmoor campaign is to either (a) convince the City of South Jordan to purchase the property and preserve the golf course, or (b) reach a compromise that preserves the property as an open space for us and our future generations to continue to enjoy. We don't want to see this green space turn into a housing or commercial development!
