ONCE IT'S GONE, IT'S GONE FOREVER.
LET'S NOT LET THAT HAPPEN.
Hollydale Golf Course is the last large, undeveloped tract of green space left in Plymouth. Providing habitat for deer, owls, mink, otter, pheasants, and a multitude of other urban wildlife, it personifies the vision of rolling and wooded terrain that the city leaders describe in their Comprehensive Plan.
BUT HOLLYDALE HAS BEEN
SOLD FOR DEVELOPMENT
And the plan is to cut down the trees,
displace the wildlife,
pave over the grass,
and build 229 houses.
YES. 229 MORE HOUSES.
229 more houses that will bring more crowded schools, more crowded roads, more flooded basements, jeopardy to Plymouth Creek, and the loss of a beautiful outdoor recreation area that's been enjoyed by Plymouth residents, young and old, for generations.
Is that really what's best for our community and our environment?
NO. IT'S NOT.
LET'S STOP THIS NONSENSE.
The decision to destroy Hollydale - and to force the consequences of that destruction on the residents - is 100% up to the seven members of the Plymouth City Council.
There is a very legitimate legal rationale for the City to decline the developer's application for rezoning. And there's a very legitimate moral means to compensate the owners for their property. There just needs to be the will to get it done.
City resources are dedicated to figuring out how to say yes to development.
City staff are not charged with determining whether or not development SHOULD be done, they are charged with figuring out HOW to get it done. All the activity, the inertia, and the expected outcome favor the developer, not you.
The destruction of green space could be a forgone conclusion, unless the Planning Commission and the City Council hear from you.
Help the City Council get to the right decision.
