No to High-Rise Apartments in Spanish Town

IN RECOGNITION of the plan by Slaughter Holdings, LLC to develop a proposed six story, high density apartment building on the half block of land bordered by N. 7th Street, Capital View and N. 6th Street; and WHEREAS, the proposed building does not conform with our Historic Guidelines and would be in shocking contrast to the current historic Spanish Town buildings; and WHEREAS, the current land use and zoning does not permit such a structure to be built and rezoning this property would negate the newly passed Historic District designation; and WHEREAS, the proposed project demands the destruction of seven (7) more historic homes in a neighborhood beset by development pressures and other encroachment on all sides; and WHEREAS, the proposed structure would house nearly 200 new residents and thereby create additional automobile traffic and parking problems that would aggravate the already stressed narrow streets of Spanish Town; THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Historic Spanish Town Civic Association, owners, residents and supporters listed below oppose the development as presently proposed and urge you to vote against the requested zoning and land use changes:
