Some girl just dropped this off at my door:
JULY 14th Planning Commision (sic) Meeting
7:30 PM Wednesday
Are you aware that the city wants to rezone the property behind Arby’s? After Arby’s finished building they decided they didn’t want to pay taxes on property they couldn’t use, so they sold it back to the City of Fraser for $1.00. So now we have to worry [i]AGAIN[/i] about what they want to build there. Right now it is zoned commercial, but is landlocked. There is no direct access through 15 Mile Road. They want to rezone to residential high which means they could build apartments or condos on the property. What they want to do is build apartments there. Not Senior Apartments, but regular apartments. Do we really need more apartments in the City of Fraser? No!! Do we want to look at another apartment complex on our way into our subdivision? Well, your neighbors who will be on the property line looking at it do not !! We don’t want to be in our backyards with the 15-16 units staring back at us and looking at a parking lot and balconies with all the junk on them. It will lower [i]our[/i] property value right away and in the long run affect the whole subdivision. This subdivision is one of the highest taxed in the City of Fraser. Come support us in our fight to STOP them building apartments. We would love to see the property left alone like it should have been after Arby’s bought it.
My favorite line in the whole thing is:
“We don’t want to be in our backyards with the 15-16 units staring back at us and looking at a parking lot and balconies with all the junk on them.”
So what they’re saying is the units will stare back at us, look at a parking lot and some balconies with all THE junk on them.
What is the junk?
Not just random junk, but the chosen junk.
I’m thinking about going to this meeting and supporting the apartment complex developers, simply because I don’t want to be associated with a bunch of ninnies who can’t put together an even halfway cromulent letter.
Frankly, I would be more upset if they were adding more senior apartments…those fuckers can’t drive for shit.
