I am fully in support of these changes. Far too often variances are required to rebuild identically to the surrounding houses and neighborhood. The current zoning ordinance is designed for larger .25 acre lots and is not consistent with the fact that most older neighborhoods have 50' widths. There has been substantial investment and vetting of these changes through the "missing middle study", but unfortunately none of them have been implemented yet. Building more homes is the only solution to the housing crisis we face.

Hello, I am the daughter of a resident who lives in Gettysvue, and I wanted to show my support in standing against the condos attempting to be built. Not only is this completely unreasonable considering the amount of traffic it will bring to the neighborhood, it is outright dangerous. There are currently no sidewalks in Gettysvue, which is a problem in itself that will be heavily exacerbated by additional housing. There’s already too many cars parked in the street on the side of the road, and when this is coupled with cars not following the speed limit you have cars swerving out of their lanes almost hitting pedestrians. I fear if condos are built someone will get hurt. If these condos connected to a main road it would be one thing, but these condos are going INSIDE a neighborhood, adding additional traffic. Please don’t build these condos, the only reason I can think these are being built is pure greed and financial gain, obviously the people of this neighborhood don’t want them here.

I have read the staff report that recommends denial for this case. I believe this denial recommendation to be arbitrary as there is sufficient density left on the overall development to allow this proposed development. This parcel was also noted to be developed as villas on the original approved plans. This plan is also not substantially different than the condos that are being built along Linksview Drive. In my opinion, there is not a legal reason to deny the development of this property and therefore should be approved.

Please stop destroying our town with these massive neighborhoods. Our infrastructure is already at its max. The schools are full, the roads are too small, and traffic on Hardin Valley is often at a stand still. Before we start cramming more people in, please expand infrastructure.

I support this rezoning. Additional people bring additional services, parks, greenways, and vehicle infrastructure. Hardin Valley needs people if residents want those things.
