READ THE PETITION AND FILL OUT THE FORM (BELOW)
Indian Lakes Resort requests a zoning change for its golf course property, which would allow residential homes to be built on the property. Our position is that the current zoning should be maintained.
We have many issues with the requested zoning change, including:
ISSUE #1: Directly or through the Village of Bloomingdale, Indian Lakes Resort has received inquiries from investors interested in purchasing the property, with its current zoning, to resume its use as a golf course.
ISSUE #2: Indian Lakes, attempting to receive a higher price via a zoning change, refuses to discuss selling the property to golf course investors.
ISSUE #3: Traffic and pedestrian safety issues in both the immediate area (including Schick Road) as well as within the Village overall
ISSUE #4: Negative impact on property values of homeowners bordering, directly or generally, the existing property, which through the 2016 season was a golf course
ISSUE #5: Elimination of significant open space within the Village, negatively impacting the Village Plan
ISSUE #6: Negatively impacting population density within the general area
ISSUE #7: Roughly five-to-seven years of construction dust, noise and traffic for surrounding residents who are entitled to quiet enjoyment of their properties
ISSUE #8: Unnecessarily enriching the existing owners of Indian Lakes Resort, who purchased the property fully aware of its open space zoning but want to materially benefit from a zoning reclassification via the higher property value a rezoning would create.
ISSUE #9: Questionable financial stability of the proposed home builder, resulting in the risk that the builder would not have the financial capacity to complete the project.
We, the undersigned, call on the Village of Bloomingdale to reject the rezoning application for the Indian Lakes property, thereby maintaining its current zoning.
By submitting this form I agree that I am 18 years of age or older and am supporting the petition against rezoning the Indian Lakes Golf Course land.
