I oppose the proposal for zoning change of district lot 1312 North Harman Road.
I have lived on Ranch Road for over 30 years. After looking at the proposal to change the zoning I came away with a 100 per cent disapproval of such development.
In the last couple of years, I have heard a dramatic increase of horn honking at the intersection of Leek Road and Highway 101. Vehicles are stopped on the highway waiting to make a left-hand turn on to lower and upper Leek Road; some of them pass on the inside, making it a very dangerous situation for drivers waiting on Leek Road wanting to turn onto the highway.
Leek Road is steep where it meets the highway. With ice and snow on it in the winter and with increased traffic, we are at a much higher risk of someone sliding into a vehicle from behind, sending it into the highway traffic.
We have reached our maximum growth with the recent increase of five-acre parcels on Harman Road just below the proposed zoning change property.
Traffic, water, fire exits, wildlife and aesthetically pleasing green spaces close to the community are issues that affect more than just the residents of this area.
