Growing neighborhood is good development
My 50-year-old family home still stands on the corner of McCollum Drive and the Spur Highway. Many of my neighbors are second- and third-generation families. Our vibrant and growing residential neighborhood is not a deteriorating corridor. We take pride in our community, and have invested our lives developing it. There are actually newly built homes behind the trees along the Spur across from Kenai High School. We are not asking the city to stop development. We are asking the city to adhere to its own Planning and Zoning Code and promote the development this neighborhood is experiencing and was zoned to have -- residential! Close to 600 residents petitioned to move the Council's rezone ordinance to a vote of the people. It is up to you, citizens of Kenai to make a decision about what kind of city you want to live in. Rezoning could be coming to your home in the very near future. If you want to stop this improper zoning, protect the residential neighborhoods of Kenai and promote responsible planned development vs. piecemeal sprawl, vote "yes" on Proposition A
