Kings Mill Zoning Hearing - Round 6 Reminder

Round 6 is coming this Monday for the Forks zoning challenge hearing by Kings Mill & partners!

When again? - Monday, December 4th at 7:30 PM

Where? - Forks Municipal Building -
Please note: This is the regular meeting hall in the new Municipal Building, the one with the comfortable chairs!

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 roofs and asphalt

This can't be a good thing for Forks. We urge you to attend these zoning challenge hearings. The developers do! And, your presence makes a difference. It reminds them that Forks residents do indeed care about their quality of life and about what they (KMRD, LP) want to do to it!

Bring family, bring friends, bring neighbors... let's not leave an empty seat in the room on Monday, December 4th!

Round 7 is scheduled for December 18th at 7:30 PM. Mark your calendars!
