To the editor:
The people of Whiteland, and other concerned citizens in attendance at the plan commission hearing Nov. 5, and the residents who have signed a petition, more than 200 currently, have demonstrably expressed their displeasure via vocal and written opposition to an R-4 zoning request and proposed high density-low value residential development in the heart of Whiteland.
Concerned Whiteland citizens believe both the R-4 zoning, and the proposed development, would set the wrong precedents for current and future development in Whiteland by creating a new, unprecedented, low set of zoning standards for residential development. The proposed development would be located south of Whiteland Road, east of Mill Stone and north of the Park Forest subdivisions on the most desirable property in Whiteland for development.
A large number of concerned citizens of Whiteland believe that the development proposals before the town government are bad ideas. The proposals would create the precedent-setting establishment of the first ever R-4 residential zone in Whiteland, and a high density — low value development immediately; one that would invite other such developments in the future.
