Petition Against Rezoning of 3720 Moorefield Road to Heavy Business District
This petition is being signed by concerned residents of Moorefield Township, recommending the Board of Clark County Commissioners deny Donald Castle's request to rezone lot located at 3720 Moorefield Road from Agricultural to Heavy Business District. Our concerns are related to safety, security, and nuisance created from the proposed business development plan for self-storage units, submitted in Mr. Castle.
This lot is located at the corner of State Route 4 and Moorefield Road which has a history of car accidents, with many resulting in fatalities. More traffic created by the self-storage units may lead to more accidents. The property in Mr. Castle's request is located in a rural area. With many self-storage units providing 24 hour access, neighboring property owners may be at greater risk for theft, vandalism and trespassing during late evening and early morning hours. Due to the nature of this business, several high capacity lights will need to be installed for security of both the business owner's and customer's property. The span of light may encroach upon adjacent residential property.
Signing this petition is request the Clark County Rural Zoning Commission recommend denial of proposal and the Board of Clark County Commissioners deny Rezoning Case #Z-2016-09.
