- An open letter to County Commissioners. On June 6th, County Commissioners vote on proposed residential development in a wildlife preserve in a predominantly rural area.
Honorable County Commissioners,
The proposed development on Waterline Road causes grave concern for those who live in the immediate area as well as for the larger Manatee community. We entrust our county commissioners with the responsibility to limit urban sprawl and the duty and prevent the development of agricultural property.
Destroying wildlife preserves and the essentially rural nature of our community for a new home subdivision is not time appropriate with the spate of homes on the market and pending foreclosures. It is also patently unreasonable while there are tens of thousands of lots presently zoned and available for building new homes.
Waterline Road is not adequately wide or structurally sound to absorb the vast increase in traffic the proposed development will bring. At present, Rye Road experiences extremely heavy use several times each day. A recent change in dump truck routing seriously exacerbates the problem. The notion that additional residential traffic, accompanying this proposed development, can be absorbed by these narrow, heavily traveled routes is ill conceived and short sighted.
Please recognize these considerations and preserve the fundamental nature of our area by voting NO on the proposed development of Waterline Road.
