Franklin Area Residents Oppose Ashcroft Valley
This online petition is in regards to the proposed annexation of the Ashcroft Valley (204.081 acres on the Adams Property) that would border the Cedarmont, Cross Creek and Franklin East communities.
The issue of required connectivity is opposed by our communities. If there becomes full connection (as the developer is proposing), Cross Creek would be fully connected to Franklin East, the new October Park subdivision, Ashcroft Valley (383 new homes), Falcon Creek (hundreds of homes), the new Simmon's Ridge (408 townhouses & homes with the first phase ranging in size from 1,569 square feet to 1,950 square feet.), and any other new development south of that. All these subdivisions are required to connect.
By signing this petition, you are in agreement that we want to keep Cross Creek Dr & Biltmore Ct. closed in order to keep our neighborhoods private and safe for all residents. Stand with us to keep fighting against high density housing pouring into our county road.
Neighborhoods from I-65 to Arno Road will be effected. We hope the city of Franklin will take the necessary steps and vote against the dangerous connectivity of these developments to our neighborhoods. Help us raise awareness of these concerns about the long term consequences of the annexation.
- Traffic Congestion: Our subdivision will become "pass-thru routes" for more than 1,000 new homes. Our existing two lane roads will not be able to withstand this growth and our neighborhood does not have sidewalks for our residents on foot. This would be too dangerous to allow this to happen.
- Terrain & Blasting: The property potentially being developed contains a diverse terrain and three high-volume gas lines.
- Educational Infrastructure: The integration of more than 600 estimated students into an already saturated Page school system will cause a strain on the excellent Williamson County school district.
We must stop BOMA from approving this connectivity! Please share this online petition with your friends and neighbors to sign. Thank you!
