Janet's email opposing Hatcher Property Rezoning

 “Aesthetics and comfort”or “tax dollars and crowding”? Cary, Morrisville, and Apex used to care about the look and feel of these small towns. We could drive down the road and businesses were landscaped in a way that felt welcoming and beautiful. Now they feel sterile or industrial. 

In this area, in question, we now have the Publix shopping center, Searstone, and Cornerstone at the corner of Davis and High House. We now have the Walmart shopping center, Grace Park, the Food Lion shopping center, and now hundreds of apartment buildings at the corner of Davis Drive and Morrisville Carpenter. Also, down Davis Drive, we now have the Wegman’s shopping center with hundreds of new homes, townhomes, and apartments nearby. Driving down Morrisville Carpenter toward Hwy 54 there are hundreds, if not thousands of new apartments, townhomes, and homes. 

There are now hundreds of homes and townhomes where there were once Green Acres Farms on Morrisville Carpenter. There is a huge thoroughfare being planned To connect Morrisville Carpenter and Hwy 55.  On the corners of Morrisville Parkway and Louis Stevens and Morrisville Parkway and Carpenter Upchurch, there are hundreds of homes and townhomes being planned there as well. None of these areas have considered aesthetics, history, or infrastructure. 

So between Highway 55 Morrisville Parkway and Morrisville Carpenter Road, there will be thousands upon thousands of vehicles traveling those roads daily. Huge apartment buildings and townhomes negating historical zoning laws. 

Rezoning to meet the needs of builders instead of appealing to your constituents. Why?  It seems all these municipalities care about our tax dollars. Why? Aren’t we one of the wealthiest municipalities in North Carolina? 

Please appeal to your constituents and not builders.
