Hello friends and neighbors in Gwinnett County.
I am writing this letter to inform you of a “Special Rezoning Request” that could devalue our property greatly. Please take a minute to view the information and take actions.
The lawyer office of Mahaffey Pickens Tucker, LLP in behalf of their client Lancaster Enterprises, LLC have a rezoning request to build a “Solid Waste Transfer Station” in the middle of our back yard, the Gwinnett County clean and beautiful. They wanted to dump all kind of trash, waste dump at: 4400 Shackleford Road, Norcross, GA 30093 (near Gwinnett Mall). In addition to that, heavy traffic of hundred of heavy trucks travel from everywhere to this location daily to dump their trash will block off I-85 everyday. Their application case number is: SUP09002 and RZC09003.
The economy is bad. Our home values have been drops drastically lately …. Add this waste station (trash dump field) into the equation only make it worse.
If you are concern about your home value, please make your voice be heard by the Gwinnett county Board of Commissioners. They have already set a schedule “Public Hearing” to VOTE on the issue on Tuesday February 03, 2009 at Gwinnett county court house: 75 Langley Dr, Lawrenceville, GA 30045.
Time is essential, please CALL (Gwinnett resident), write letters (Gwinnett resident), EMAIL your commissioners and let them know that you are OPPOSE to this rezoning project and Waste Transfer Station.
