Re: “The ugly power struggles over 751 South

Mark A. couldn't agree more on getting the facts correct. With that in mind, I know this link from the Durham County Gov't's site lists all the documents to be considered for the rezoning request.…

Can you show us where in these documents the developer commitments reside? Not being abundantly clear on the process I'd simply like to know so that I have my information correct in the public debate.

Re: “The ugly power struggles over 751 South

I am a home owner in the Grandale community off of Grandale Rd. in Durham. Looking at the map and proposed illustrative mixed used plan, I have deep concerns that Scott King rd will become negatively impacted by higher traffic. My family frequently bikes down Scott King in order to get to the public park and the American Tobacco Trail. It's clear to me that folks will try to find the quickest route to their destination, regardless of the number of lanes on the road or the speed limit of the road. Anyone originating from points west and southwest will clearly chose Scott King as opposed to I-40/751/Fayetteville roads. And anyone originating from 751 South heading west will likely do the same.

Furthermore I'm concerned about the environmental impact this development will have on Jordan Lake. I smell a rat when I read that a survey was funded by the developer which redrew the watershed lines and was approved by the Durham County Commission in 2005. I'd like to know if an independent survey can be done which examines the original watershed boundaries, prior to 2005 and compares that to today's.
