Hanson Aggregates, a company owned by Heidelberg Cement, is attempting to have land adjacent to Umstead Park, which is currently zoned as residential, rezoned for industrial use.
I oppose the rezoning petition Z-2-11, which will re-zone the area adjacent to Umstead State Park from low impact Residential Land to high impact Industrial Land.
This re-zoning will have several negative impacts, including to the environment and the health of Raleigh's citizens. Further, this re-zoning petition is in direct opposition to the City of Raleigh's Comprehensive Plan, which is designed, in part, to protect citizens from spot rezoning.
The Block the Quarry adjacent to Umstead Park petition to Raleigh City Council was written by Anonymous and is in the category City & Town Planning at GoPetition.
