SAND LAKE RD. WILL GET A LOT WORSE.
BUT WE CAN AVOID THAT.
We need to oppose a Zoning Change from allowing the construction of a Commercial Plaza at The River of life/Good Samaritan Church on Sand Lake Road.
The same NATIONAL Developer who has attempted earlier to change the zoning on this property to COMMERCIAL, is trying again. Although they now own the property, there's absolutely NO permits or zoning to build a Commercial Plaza. They have submitted a new application for almost the same project, with minor changes. This time they are claiming to also put a "park" on the property, next to the commercial plaza. This proposed "park" is just a tiny area of the property. They are hoping to get the commercial plaza approved, by presenting the project this way. WE NEED to LET the County know, that we ARE still OPPOSED to this.
It is therefore extremely important that we ATTEND the COMMUNITY MEETING on Tues. Jan 21th, and the Hearing before the Commissioners on Tues. Jan., 28th. We need to show that we will not be fooled into destroying our community and further aggravating the Sand Lake Rd. congestion. They are hoping that the residents assume that it's already approved, when in fact, there is still no commercial zoning, and we need to let ourselves be heard, so it stays that way.
REASONS TO OPPOSE
THIS ZONING CHANGE:
This will cause MAJOR TRAFFIC CONGESTION on Sand Lake Rd. and make it even worse than it already is.
This will extend the commercial part of Sand Lake Rd. and convert our community into a COMMERCIAL zone.
Once this property becomes commercial, it can be used for a variety of completely NON-RESIDENTIAL USAGES.
