Zoning Challenge - Round 3 - 10/16/06

Round Three is coming for the zoning challenge hearing by Kings Mill & partners!

When? - Monday, October 16th at 7:30 PM
Where? - Forks Community Center

The Kings Mill partnership (Zawarski, Maloney, & Benner) alleges that the Farmland Protection District zoning is too restrictive. Their vision proposes 3,042 dwelling units -- apartments, townhomes, and a mobile home park. To us, that looks like:

  • 6,000 more cars on town roads everyday
  • 8,000 more students in the schools
  • 25% of open farm fields covered with roof tops and asphalt

This can't be a good thing for Forks. We urge you to attend these zoning challenge hearings. Your presence makes a difference. It means that residents care about what is happening to their town. Bring family, bring friends, bring neighbors... let's not leave an empty seat in the gym on Monday, October 16th!

Round Four is scheduled for October 30th at 7:30 PM.
