We, the below signed homeowners residing in the Inwood Hills neighborhood, stand together to say that we do not want a fire station built near the intersection of Hardin and Virginia.
Since this neighborhood's beginnings a mere 4 years ago, we have suffered the building of a water tower ion our northern border, a dog kennel on our western border, a Walmart and other retail space to be built across from us on Hardin, and now possibly a fire station. Enough is enough.
The proposed fire station would fall directly behind several homes on Elm Creek Drive, which runs parallel to Hardin. All of the trees that currently stand on that piece of land will be cut down and the station itself will be a visible eyesore for our community, particularly those homes on Elm Creek Drive, as well as anyone entering our neighborhood at the Bent Creek entrance. But the lights and sirens at all times of the day and night will effect the entire neighborhood.
We believe the city of McKinney must take into account the impacts of the existing water tower, dog kennel and the soon-to-be Walmart have on our neighborhood and must find an alternate location for the fire station. We chose Inwood Hills as our neighborhood for the peace and serenity its removal from busier parts of McKinney provided, as well as the beautiful natural state of the area. That has already been diminished by the water tower, dog kennel and will certainly be even further harmed by the new Walmart.
City of McKinney, show that you care about the quality of the lives of your citizen and that you listen when citizens speak up. Find an alternate location for the fire station and let us keep the last bit of peace and serenity we have left.
