Petition to the Pasco County Board of County Commissioners

We, the undersigned, urge the County Commissioners to either deny the application for or require very strong conditions for the Master Plan Unit Development (MPUD) zoning change requested by SOHO Dayflower LLC, et al. Our Quail Hollow Boulevard community has been well established for decades with low density and large lots. This project threatens our comprehensive plan designated Rural Neighborhood Protection Area with overwhelming change that will significantly alter the character of our community. Here are several important issues to address.
- This area floods historically. Over the last twenty years, high intensity/density development has surrounded us and has exacerbated our problem. No solution has been approved to alleviate the issue. This MPUD would add more pressure and make it worse.
- Our storm water drainage system is substandard making it highly vulnerable to changes internal to Quail Hollow and downstream on this property. We will flood again and badly.
- All of our residential roads are deemed substandard by the County. This means there is no road adequate to serve this development. The two proposed accesses are placed in such a way to significantly alter surrounding properties.
- Existing road safety issues (blind curves, narrow lanes, no shoulder, no sidewalks) will be made worse by the additional traffic. It will endanger lives. 13,000 additional daily trips to our roads is too many.
- There are no public utilities in this area. Installing new water, reclaim and sewer utilities will massively disrupt our community and change its semi-rural character.
- A large portion of this property (as much as 50%) consists of wetlands that are adjacent to and drain to Cypress Creek, an Outstanding Florida Water. Wetland disturbance and alteration will affect water quality, which ultimately affects the City of Tampa’s drinking water.
