Stop The Destruction Of Gateway!
On Tuesday, October 16, Forney City Council will be considering a rezoning request to destroy the Gateway concept with a 1.2 million square foot distribution center at the southwest corner of Highway 80 and Gateway nicknamed "Project Fireball."
In 2016, the City adopted a new comprehensive plan that envisioned a walkable mixed use center with retail, office, and high quality housing at this location. In Texas, the Texas Local Government Code requires zoning to be in conformance with a city's comprehensive plan.
On October 4, 2018, the Planning and Zoning Commission voted 5-1 to recommend approval of this project, despite it's lack of conformance with the City's comprehensive plan. Should the City Council approve the project on Tuesday, the act would be illegal.
Please "sign" this petition to let the City know that we oppose the destruction of the vision for our city and neighborhood for sUhort term gains that the City has negotiated without public support. Please also forward asap to get as many signatures as possible since we are late to start this.
