SAVE HIGH POINT WATER!!!
THANKS TO YOU, we have successfully stopped the construction of a gas station with underground storage tanks at the intersection of Eastchester and Gordon Road, according to a story published in the High Point Enterprise. HOWEVER, our work is not done, as the developer still wants to have the property rezoned to allow fast food joint with drive thru window, a move that will add enormous pressure on the traffic flow at this snarled intersection, at a stretch of Eastchester that is already backed up most of the day in both directions. The High Point City Council will give this issue a final consideration on March 1st at 5:30 PM. PLEASE voice your opposition to this rezoning request to the Council this week.
It is easy....just go to:

PLEASE DO IT TODAY...THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
YOUR LAKE....YOUR CITY...YOUR WATER!!!
THE FUTURE OF YOUR SAFE CLEAN DRINKING WATER COULD BE IN DANGER!
On December 8th The High Point Planning and Zoning Committee will vote to rezone a parcel of land at 1809 Eastchester Drive, High Point, North Carolina 27265.
If this rezoning request is approved, the developer plans to build a combination gas station, restaurant, and car wash just yards from the largest watershed in Guilford County and the sole source of drinking water for more than 100,000 people in High Point and the surrounding area.
If this application is approved, there will be underground fuel storage tanks which could leak and leach into our water reservoir. Underground storage tanks hold toxic material, gasoline and waste oil, dangerous substances that can cause cancer and even harm developing children. These chemicals can quickly move through soil and pollute groundwater.
Even without the threat to our water source, there are numerous reasons why adding a business of this type to an already congested area of the city is ill-advised, but the most important reason to stop this development is the potential risk to High Point’s water source.
Please join us to help stop the approval of this rezoning request by signing this Petition which will be presented to the Planning and Zoning Committee prior to their meeting on November 17th.
We don’t want your money...just your support...and your signature!!!
