Plat A Survey – Question 11– Public Comments Received What are some of the issues that you see impacting the area between 400 East and 100 East in the future? With the demolition of the Stoker school and the intended upcoming construction, I anticipate there will be areas here that will see increased traffic. We find it disheartening that over the past few years several years there have been numerous homes/yards in our area that are exceptionally well-kept but once they go up for sale the new owners are allowed to let the yards and homes go to crap and no one in the city government seems to care. Take a look at the home on the SW corner of 4th N and 2nd E as well as the home at the NE corner of 2nd S and 1st E. Road repair/upgrades and infrastructure repair/upgrades are definitely needed. And what about the sidewalks?! It's horribly dangerous to walk around this neighborhood, as the sidewalks are raised and/or sunken in so many areas. businesses coming that would cause the area to be a mixed zoning and bring in unwanted rift raft. tearing down old homes for the big lot to develop The City trying to move City Hall here. Increased traffic to the area The fifth south and fourt north coridor I see no reason why multi-family dwellings (apartments, etc) could not be allowed. To many apartments going in and the traffic is getting worst 1. pressure to undo what we did in 2003 and higher density housing and businesses. We see it as the edges continue to be nibbled at. We have attended every meeting that has requested a zoning change and expressed our displease in what we see as the disregard by the planning commission to adhere to the zoning change and the will of over 80% of the property owners. This change has brought stability to the area. People are adding on to their homes because they own the property and want to live here. New homes are being added because of the change. 2. The roads and other infrastructure are in need of repair. 3. Property owners (absentee and owners of apartment buildings that do not take care of their property) once again the reason the zoning was changed. Some of the Apartments in this area are becoming dilapidated and a blight, not being fixed up by the owners for example: 100 north and approx. 150 East on the South side of the street. And 300 North and 250 East on the North side of the street. Not sure. We must not commercialize the area. Keep it all single family. None. It's a beautiful neighborhood and as a resident, we love our neighborhood None. Leave it alone unwanted change to condensed housing. I am greatly opposed to the demise of Stoker School and opposed to a splash pad and fountain. Commercial encroachment into the residential area/ and some neighbors are not keeping their yards kept up

Infrastructure. Road need attention area is too restricted and needs to spur development more by allowing larger size homes and garages. lots are expensive and development ncourage Need for more mixed used commercial/residential development Many homes in the area are being used as rental units (some with multiple families in one home). Homes/yards have fallen into disrepair. I believe that in a "historic area", there should be some maintenance/upkeep requirements of the owner. Some properties slipped through planning & zoning and were allowed to create duplex(home with basement apartment) therefore ignoring or outright lying about their intentions to maintain single family residential properties.
