Ridgemont Crossing PUD Re-Zoning
The purpose of this petition is to adequately represent the concern of the residents surrounding the proposed apartment project located on the north side of Dragoon Trail between Fir Road and Clover Road. There is overwhelming opposition to this development as the project is out of scale and character to the surrounding neighborhoods.
The surrounding neighborhoods are predominately owner occupied single family homes. The property in question has already been zoned for single family homes as part of the original Ridgemont Crossing Planned Unit Development.
- Allowing the development of this high-density apartment complex runs a real risk of making our homes less marketable, disrupting the community aesthetic, and significantly lowering property values as a result.
- Current homeowners would all be sacrificing our privacy and our existing neighborhood setting if this project proceeds.
- This apartment complex would impact the already existing concern of overcrowding in our schools.
- The increase in traffic generated by the project, which would be directly across from a City park, will create additional safety conflicts for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. The roads are narrow with no shoulders. There are no sidewalks. There are no bicycle lanes.
We, the undersigned of this petition DO NOT approve of these plans and oppose the rezoning request. While we are not opposed to future development of this site we are all specifically opposed to this type of project, i.e. apartments or similar structures. Moving forward with the rezoning would demonstrate a major disregard for the concern of the neighboring residents.
