Hello everyone, Please pass this message on to as many people as possible. Post it on your Facebook timeline. Tweet it if you can. Call all of your neighbors, family, and friends. Nock on doors. The time for ACTION is now!
There are just two meetings left before a final decision is made on the rezoning of Dunn and Falls of Neuse. The first of these meetings is this coming Tuesday, Feb 10, at 9am in City Council chambers at 222 W. Hargett Street when the matter returns to the City Planning Commission.
We are asking everyone who can to attend this meeting.
The developer has submitted new conditions that amount to a reduction of the overall size by 13% from 67,000 square feet to 58,000 square feet. We estimate that this will continue to result in a traffic impact of more than 5000 trips a day from people visiting the proposed strip mall from outside the area. Previously, the developer had estimated about 6000 such “non-pass-by” trips a day. The site will continue to have very limited access almost exclusively from Dunn Road.
Please make every effort to attend these last two meetings. After Tuesday our last opportunity to attend and speak to City Officials about the rezoning will be at the City Council hearing. The date of the City Council hearing will be determined depending on the outcome at Tuesday’s Planning Commission meeting.
By attending these two meetings together we can defeat this rezoning request. Let’s show them what we can do together. Just as we did at last June’s CAC meeting – let’s make history.
