***Thank you to all who have signed this petition thus far. The rezoning of the land parcel behind Cracker Barrel has been removed from the Feb. 26th Board of Mayor & Aldermen agenda. Please stay ever vigilant and engaged on this issue; it could reappear at any time. Please take a moment to sign the petition and send it to your friends as well. We need to be prepared when this issue reappears.***
We, the citizens of Hendersonville, petition the Board of Mayor & Aldermen to:
1. Deny the rezoning of the land parcel behind Cracker Barrel on Indian Lake Blvd. for the construction of multi-family housing.
2. Conduct a comprehensive traffic study of the Indian Lake Blvd. area between Main Street & SR 386, independent from the studies conducted by apartment developers.
3. Grow our city in a responsible & controlled manner without the negative impact of overdevelopment on our way of life, our schools, infrastructure or overall crime rate.
Hendersonville currently has no fewer than 22 existing or approved apartment complexes totaling 4,881 apartment units. There are currently 2 complexes under construction, but not yet complete: 1 is located behind the Glenbrook shopping center & the other is located behind the cinema at the Streets of Indian Lake. No one currently resides in these 2 complexes under construction. Our infrastructure, schools and way of life have not felt the impact of these 2 new complexes yet. However, the Board of Mayor & Aldermen is weighing the possibility of adding yet another apartment complex to the already overloaded Indian Lake Blvd.-changing our community forever.
The long-term impact of overdevelopment cannot be un-done. We urge the Board of Mayor & Aldermen to study the impact of multi-family housing & general overdevelopment by glancing toward the Antioch & Rivergate areas. The citizens of Hendersonville want to preserve our community, and the hometown atmosphere that makes Hendersonville a great place to live, work & play.
Let your voice be heard by signing this petition, contacting the aldermen and by attending the Board of Mayor & Aldermen meeting next Tuesday, Feb. 26th at 7:30 pm @ City Hall.
