Neighborhood Fighting Big-Box Development
Franklin Woods, Gardner Woods, Garner Park and Sedgefiled neighborhoods near Duhart's Creek on Lake Wylie are coming together to fight the most recent (of many) attempts to build a big-box store in an environmentally sensitive location.
PLEASE HELP STOP THIS!
For at least the fifth time in forty years, the Lineberger family is seeking to re-zone a very environmentally sensitive wooded patch between Duharts Creek and Franklin Boulevard - land across from the entrance to Lowe’s, Sam’s Club, and K-Mart. That parcel keeps City neighborhoods from the noise, lights and stormwater runoff flooding from commerce north of Franklin, and a rezoning for a commercial big box location would bring all that mess against us with only minimum buffers. This is directly counter to a negotiated zoning in 2006 for a transitional use as senior apartments in the location and against decades of planning department counsel against heavy development.
Please join with your neighbors in Gardner Park, Gardner Woods, and Sedgefield - and concerned citizens across the City - to preserve this land from commercial intrusion and more traffic congestion.
Next Neighborhood Information Meeting, August 27, 7-8 pm at Gardner Park Elementary, 738 Armstrong Park Road SHOW UP – STAND UP – SPEAK UP – BE COUNTED And please attend these two meetings in person to JUST SAY NO. Nothing gets public decision-maker attention as much as live opposition in an election year!
