The South Euclid Planning Commission approved a plan for a Big Box store to be built 50 feet from the Oakwood property line.
We took the attached pictures 5/1/11, at the Severance Walmart, of Binxie and her owner standing at a 50 ft marker.
We carefully measured 50 ft from the back of the Big Box store and positioned Binxie and her owner on the 50 ft line.
That is how close the Big Box store will be built to the property lines of the homes along Oakwood.
The back of the building will have loading docks and the garbage dumpster area.
In these photos you only see the garbage dumpster area. Please note the door left ajar to the dumpster area, litter in the area around it and the rat poison container in one corner.
The homes will be so close to the proposed Big Box that they will see nothing but a solid concrete wall.
To read the Mitigation Analysis and the Developer’s Agreement, go to this link.
Page 3 of the Developer’s Agreement states that the sidewalks will be 5 ft wide, and includes detailed dimensions of the parking spaces.
Page 5 of the Developer’s Agreement stipulates that drive-through stacking spaces will be 20 ft long and a minimum of 9 feet wide.
But they did not include in the Developer’s Agreement an adequate buffer of at least 150ft from the houses that will see the back of the Big Box.
DON’T THE PEOPLE OF OUR COMMUNITY COUNT MORE THAN PARKING SPACES, SIDEWALKS, AND DRIVE-THROUGH STACKING SPACES?
OPPOSE THE REZONING OF OAKWOOD.
