PUBLIC VIEWPOINT: Vote No On Kum & Go Plans In Fayetteville
Posted: September 22, 2013 at 1:48 a.m.
Per the article reporting on Fayetteville Planning Commission actions on Sept. 9, I encourage all Mount Comfort neighbors (Ward 4) to call City Council members and ask them to vote no on Kum & Go’s requested to rezone 1.7 acres at the corner of Mount Comfort and Shiloh Drive. According to the newspaper, city planning staff recommended denial of the request, saying the proposal wouldn’t mesh with surrounding land uses and wouldn’t serve as an adequate buff er between Interstate 540 and residential areas on either side of Mount Comfort Road. Since my neighborhood is about 1 mile from this site, I couldn’t agree more with staff. However, against staff recommendations, the Planning Commission supported Kum & Go’s request. Now it’s up to City Council to decide.
