Kings Mill Zoning Hearing - Round 11 Reminder

Round 11 is coming for the zoning challenge hearing by Kings Mill & partners! When? - Monday, April 23rd at 7:30 PM Where? - Forks Municipal Building meeting room 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. The developers do! Your presence makes a difference. It is a reminder that Forks residents do 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, April 23rd - 7:30 PM.
