Opposition to Townhome Development - Montvale Rd.
We, the concerned neighbors of the Miser property fronting Montvale Road and bordering Farris Road, respectfully ask for no zoning change on this parcel for the following reasons:
- The proposed 38-unit townhome development will not be in harmony with the area in which it is to be located. This area of Maryville is at the edge of the city limit with large lots and single-family homes. There are no other townhomes in this part of Maryville and the proposed zoning exception would clearly be inconsistent with neighborhood harmony as well as the expectations of homeowners who willingly drive the extra distance to the edge of the city limits to enjoy the benefits of the current zoning rules.
- Current infrastructure cannot handle the increase in traffic that will occur if the rezoning is permitted. Both Montvale Road and Farris Road have extreme blind spots in the areas marked for entrance to the development. If this rezoning is approved and the planned development completed, the residential neighborhoods surrounding the property will witness a dramatic increase in traffic in an already heavily congested area, which will lead to more accidents and injuries.
- If completed as proposed, the development will have an adverse effect on property values of the immediate area’s single-family homes.
- The subject lot (highlighted in red on the attached image) is also feet away from another lot (highlighted in yellow) where up to 7 homes are being built with driveway entrances on Farris Road, thereby increasing traffic congestion on Farris Road.
Please accept the signatures attached as opposition to the rezoning of the Miser property.
