Don't rezone single family homes
The City of Manassas planning commission just approved to rezone the area next to Round Elementary from R2 (single family homes) to R3 (town-homes).
We as a community have the following issue with this rezoning:
* This rezoning does not fit with the 30+ year old established surrounding communities. If the city really wanted this they would have rezoned this area during the latest comprehensive plan.
* it sets a dangerous precedent that adjacent lots can be sold and reformed into town-houses
* The current zoning of R2 already allowed for multiple single family detached homes to be built, the only reason for R3 is greed
* There are already town houses not far away at Cannon Branch, Some near Grace Methodist church, and across from All Saints church.
The next step is for a public hearing in front of City Council. Please sign this petition so that on December 14, 2020 we can bring it before them and let them know that the residents surrounding this area do not approve.
