To: Planning Commission, My wife and I own the property across Unaweep from 2767 Unaweep. We have real concern about the additional traffic on a busy Unaweep Avenue due to a City R-8 (Residential 8 du/ac) zone district. Please consider this concern in your decision. Respectfully, Paul Quam

I realize Grand Junction is a growing City and housing is in demand; however, everyone is aware that there are only three routes for traffic to take between OM and GJ and all three are experiencing significant traffic already. There are multiple large subdivisions already being rapidly developed and under construction and we have yet to experience the traffic impact these new residents will create on our congested roads/bridges. We just built a new school to accommodate the population we have now with limited room for additional students. We vote NO to rezoning and doubling this subdivision that has already been approved to a barely acceptable limit of four units per acre.
