Disapproval of Proposed Tapestry Multi-Family Project
We disapprove of the proposed Tapestry Project because it 1) violates the Verdae Master Development Plan, 2) will significantly increase the vehicular traffic on Rocky Slope Road, 3) will result in decreased land and property values for Verdae and Hollingsworth Park (HP) homeowners and reduced taxes for the city, and 4) is inconsistent with the planned architecture for the HP neighborhood. The vision for HP is advertised by Verdae as a “pedestrian-friendly streetscape, village-like atmosphere of close-knit single-family homes of yesteryear-classic architecture”. The removal of a large number of planned single-family homes by the Tapestry multi-family project and resultant traffic impact will destroy this vision and create increased automotive safety hazards for HP residents and visitors to Legacy Park. The Verdae Master Development Plan currently includes a multi-family project, which will be located between Laurens Road and the old train line that borders Hollingsworth Park and is recommended as a location for the Tapestry Project.
