Stop the Flatley Company road expansion & construction of 58 homes
The John Flatley Company is planning to build homes in the conservation area behind Spindlewick Drive which will include a road connecting Shadowbrook Drive to this new subdivision of 58 houses. The impact of this road will greatly increase traffic in our neighborhood, Long Hill Estates, and on Spit Brook Road as well as traffic at exits 1 and 4 and their surrounding neighborhoods. With this increase in traffic comes the loss of our quiet, safe neighborhoods. Construction vehicles and equipment make the streets difficult and dangerous for our children to ride their bikes and for us to walk this normally peaceful neighborhood. Developing the conservation area will desecrate what little green space our neighborhood has left also eliminating habitat for countless animals who inhabit that space.
Building 58 new homes will impact our neighborhood school, increasing class sizes which are already the highest in the city. Theses homes could also be rental properties which will add nothing to our tax base and yet our taxes keep getting higher and higher.
Update: There will only one way in and out of this new development which is through our neighborhood. There will be an emergency access only gate on the other end near Spit Brook.
We urge and implore you to sign our petition to stop this access road.
