SAY NO to any zoning changes in the Historic Holy Cross Neighborhood!

3 Signatures Goal: 200

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, ARE OPPOSED TO ANY CONSTRUCTION THAT WOULD VIOLATE THE CURRENT ZONING IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD, HOLY CROSS, INCLUDING THE CURRENT 40-FOOT HEIGHT LIMIT FOR THE FORMER HOLY CROSS SCHOOL SITE.  WE DO SUPPORT DEVELOPMENT THAT RESPECTS ZONING, SCALE & CHARACTER OF OUR NEIGHBORHOOD.

BACKGROUND:

Make YOUR VOICE heard in opposing the proposed rezoning of the former Holy Cross School campus. Our City Council Member, JAMES GRAY, must be made aware that we, as a neighborhood, stand AGAINST any redevelopment requiring changes to existing zoning. This important because: -Perez Architects has put a plan before the planning commission to rezone the school site to a commercial zoning from the existing RD-3 zoning (singles & doubles). -Perez’s plan calls for a 132 foot high tower on the levee where current zoning only permits structures of 40 feet and less. -The height, density and scale of the proposed development are totally out of place in Historic Holy Cross & would dominate the neighborhood, effectively extinguishing its rural character & historic nature, its best features. -The plan put forth by Perez Architects does not respect the neighborhood’s documented wishes, CURRENT ZONING & the existing architectural fabric of Historic Holy Cross. ***IMPORTANT: Please sign petition if you are a HOLY CROSS resident or property owner only. If you have signed a paper version of this petition on or after 2-19-2013, please do not sign again here. INCLUDE YOUR HOLY CROSS PROPERTY ADDRESS IN COMMENTS, please.  Thank you!
