This property is adjacent to a long term lock down care facility and across 28 1/4 Road from single family and multi-family living areas. The current R-8 zoning is appropriate for this area. Rezoning this area to Mixed use would allow retail, service centers, employment centers, and light manufacturing facilities to be built on this property. None of these types of operations are conducive to single family and multi-family living areas let alone a long term care facility. The area east and north of this property is owned by the City of Grand Junction for development as Matchett Park. Almost all of the allowed facilities are not appropriate for being located next to a family city park. In addition, all of these types of operations will greatly increase traffic on 28 1/4 Road which is the only access to this property. 28 1/4 Road is a 2 lane street with center medians which is not large enough for the probable increased future traffic flow. With this increased traffic comes the possibility of increased criminal activity due to the proximity of the allowed businesses to the residential areas. Nothing prevents the allowed businesses from being open and operating any hours day or night which only exacerbates the potential criminal activity. For the reasons stated above, I STRONGLY oppose the rezoning of 600 28 1/4 Road to Mixed Use from R-8.
