My husband and I live at 2545 G 3/8 Road directly in front of the property being annexed (2537 G 3/8 Road). We have sent letters to the Council and to the developer of the Brown project outlining some issues with the plan, as proposed. Unfortunately, we are not able to be at the meeting in-person tonight but we would like certain issues addressed. The developer, Jim McCurter, has been amenable to speaking with us regarding several safety issues (sharing soil testing results with direct neighbors and mitigating debris and particulate issues). However, it has come to our attention that one of the biggest issues – the planned egress point/street between two existing homes (2545 and 2538) was not in the original plans the developer submitted to the city. This street was added to the plan despite the objection of the development team and is likewise, vehemently objected to by the families living in both affected homes for a variety of reasons. This planned road would significantly impact safety for residents, quality of life for both homeowners, and irrigation access specifically for 2545. In addition to not being required by code, it is completely redundant as another egress point/road to G 3/8 Road will be located less than 250’ west (around the back of 2538), completely avoiding an unnecessary and disruptive bifurcation of two residences for a public road. The egress between the two homes, which we are objecting to, is at the low point of a hill with minimal visibility – unlike the one located 250’ away at the top of this hill. There are currently no sidewalks on G 3/8 Road but there is significant pedestrian and small vehicle traffic, which can only be expected to increase once the new development is in place. Adding a road at the point between these two homes for a development of this size would create a significant safety issue for residents of this neighborhood and should not be considered – even beyond the objections of both homeowners – until the proper infrastructure (sidewalks at the very minimum) is already in place. Failing to do so will put neighborhood residents at-risk. We ask members of the Council and the Commission to please move forward to remove this contentious egress point from the plan prior to annexation in order to avoid safety and quality of life issues for the homeowners immediately affected as well as the residents of G 3/8 Road and families in Wilson Ranch. Respectfully, James and Gena Rose
