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

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!
