Opposition to Lewter Property Re-zoning at Carpenter Fire Station and Green Level
Fellow neighbors and friends of Amberly,
A rezoning case has been filed by the Sembler Company to change the Lewter Property to commercial land use. This property is located directly across from Walgreens at Carpenter Fire Station and Green Level Church Road adjacent to Arlington Park in Amberly. This land is currently designated as residential use.
We need to come together as a community to fight this rezoning proposal as it directly affects us in Arlington Park. The proposal includes a 110,000 sqft shopping center consisting of 7 commercial buildings with one up to 55,000 sqft and a convenience store open 24/7! There is a secondary entrance to this shopping complex proposed through Northlands Drive.
NOTE: This rezoning is in addition to a proposed rezoning request for 7711 Carpenter Fire Station (the Mills Property) which would include 5 buildings including medical offices and a 180 child daycare. In the proposal 2 single story building and 2 two story buildings were included.
The harmful effects of this project include clearing many trees, burying a blue-line stream, no density transitions (meaning you will be looking at retaining walls, parking lots, loading docks and their lights) as well as the major traffic impact. Neighbors, they are proposing an 800 ft long retaining wall just 70 ft from our home sites! Also, because no left turns will be allowed from the shopping center onto Carpenter Fire Station traffic will be diverted through Northlands Drive.
We need to stand together to support what is in the best interest of our neighborhood. We want our kids to be able to play outside, ride their bikes and wait for the school bus without worrying about people speeding through our neighborhood to a gas station!
Please take the following actions to oppose this rezoning request:

Thank you all for your support on this matter.
