Kaysville Boondocks

To Kaysville City: As concerned citizens and members of the Kaysville community we, the undersigned, strongly oppose the currently proposed Boondocks development at the property of approximately 500 south Deseret Drive and ask that the Kaysville City Planning Commission and/or Kaysville City Council deny the establishment of Boondocks. Our reasons include, but are not limited, to the following: 1. This business will on peak days bring approximately 2,000 excessive and unwanted cars to the west side of Kaysville, which is currently congested with recreational and residential traffic. 2. The timing of the Barnes Park and Angle Street recreational traffic mirrors the peak traffic patterns of the proposed Boondocks development, which are weekday afternoons, evenings and weekends when kids are out of school. 3. Additionally, the residential traffic will only increase over time as undeveloped land has houses built on them, making traffic even more unbearable with the addition of approximately 2,000 from Boondocks. 4. The design of the intersection of 600 west and the new 200 north bridge do not appear to be designed to a accommodate the Boondocks traffic and will cause traffic to seek alternate routs such as Kays Drive, Flint Street, Sunset Street, etc. as a means to avoid backed up traffic and when the railroad crossing is blocked. These roads are not designed as major roads and this will endanger and inconvenience the residents of these neighborhoods. 5. Kaysville city will not guarantee that Boondocks employees and patrons will not park on residential streets. 6. This business will cause a significant change to Kaysville that is against all of the reasons that we selected Kaysville as a place to live and raise our families. We enjoy our "bedroom" community that includes businesses that typically serve Kaysville residents and do not draw unwanted traffic and patrons from other towns. 7. Boondocks is not the right fit for our community.
