Brook Creek Neighborhood Assoc. has notified the City that it is against "Double Density" in 2 letters:
Here's a quick summary:
- letter to the Affordable Housing Advisory Board
- letter to the Planning Commission(June 24, 2019).
- letter to the Planning Commission(Aug 28, 2019).
- Brook Creek is Already Dense Enough. Our lots are small. Instead, increase the density in the sparsely settled, low-density areas out west.
- Double Density: Double Problems. Double density doubles the people, pavement, flooding, noise, dogs, parking, etc.
- Clustered Uniformity is a Ghetto. Dense clustering creates mono-cultural ghettos. It harms our neighborhood livability and property values. Income diversity is healthier and more vital.
- Brook Creek Has Most Poor Housing. Brook Creek already has mobile home parks, public housing, Habitat for Humanity, and Tenants to Homeowners.
- Infill Density Takes Food Garden Lots. Our gardening neighborhood is losing food garden lots to infill density. Is urban agriculture no longer important?
- Double Density Law: Anti-Democratic. The double density law would let a developer double up a lot without public hearing or protest by neighbors.
