Protect Our Lawrenceville Communities and Schools

We, the undersigned, OPPOSE Special Use Permit Case #SUP-06-123 and ask that you vote to protect our communities and schools by REJECTING the developer\'s request to put 85 homes onto 60 foot by 90 foot lots within an established R100 zoned area. This development would attach to Gatewood Acres and hurt all nearby communities. It would negatively TRIPLE CAR TRAFFIC, trucks and busses in Gatewood Acres. It would also worsen traffic where Gatewood Drive connects to already-congested Braselton Highway (SR 124). This will cause many more dangerous driving situations for all surrounding communitites due to hundreds of extra \"left-turns\" without Traffic Control each week. It would further OVER-CROWD 3 very crowded schools: Dyer Elementary, Creekland Middle and Collins Hill High. Our children are already being taught in multiple expansion trailers - why make it worse It will HARM property values and quality of life by a house unit density of 5.7 per acre developed. Although the developer claims a lower density by including some unbuilt acreage, the true visual impact will be a HIGH-DENSITY area that is wholly inconsistent with our existing residences. It VIOLATES the Gwinnett County Area Plan Policy Standard that states such developments should not be placed in an established low-density Residential area. The developer is trying to pervert the Conservation Subdivion option by squeezing 85 lots into only 15 acres. The visual impact will be very much like Row Houses that do not conform to R-100 spacing. Please REJECT this Special Use Permit and protect our communities and schools by only allowing regular R-100 zoning for this site - which would have less negative impact on our quality of life.

Sponsor

We are concerned Gwinnett County residents in adjacent communities and other surrounding communitites that would be negatively impacted by this Special Use Permit request. We oppose the request titled SUP-06-123 before the Gwinnett County Planning Commission. Please join us by signing the petition on-line.
