To Whom It May Concern, I am a citizen of Jackson County, and I am concerned about the impacts of the Oregon Department of Transportation rest area proposal (file#: LRP2007-00008). The proposed tourist welcome center and rest area will impact the areas east of Interstate 5, in Ashland Oregon. It is my understanding that the project will negatively and irrevocably affect the value of nearby properties, especially the land at 488 Crowson Rd. I am petitioning you to reconsider the effects of the project. Please take responsibility for the financial damages brought upon land owners, whose residential property may be rendered functionally obsolete and financially impaired by this action. Nearby properties will experience increased noise, loss of privacy and exposure to crime. Environmental effects should also be considered, including the impairment of storm water and well water quality, reduction of wildlife habitat value, and the loss of views and landscaping potential. These impacts will drastically reduce the property value to the current owners, their renters, and potential buyers. I request that alternatives be considered to mitigate for these negative impacts. I encourage you to provide equitable compensation to those land owners most impacted by the development. This mitigation may involve purchasing the land for your own use as well as offsetting the administrative costs and stress and strain caused by this action. Thank you in advance for reaffirming your community accountability. Sincerely, A Concerned Citizen


NOTICE: THIS PETITION WEBSITE ASKS FOR A DONATION AFTER SUBMITTING YOUR SIGNATURE -- YOU DO NOT HAVE TO RESPOND TO THAT. SIMPLY CLOSE THE PAGE. My name is Sharon Miranda. I am the founder of the WebSpirit Community, and a property owner in the town of Ashland Oregon. The property I own, reside upon, and rent to others will be greatly affected by the proposed ODOT project. The new road would border my property on one side and provide access to a large commercial tourist complex, immediately visible from my front door. The impacts upon my property value will be severe. I am seeking to mobilize the community on my behalf and the behalf of other impacted property owners. Signatures on this petition, combined with large public turn-out at the hearing on March 27th, may bring about equitable compensation for the proposed impacts.
