Timbergrove resident points out opposition to Kings Highway rezoning

After publishing this post about the city council’s recent decision to rezone land in the Kings Highway Conservation District, we received this point of information from Timbergrove resident John McCalib (any residents who live on Timbergrove Circle, just west of the rezoned property, would have to drive by the land on either Mary Cliff or Kings Highway to get in and out of their neighborhood):

"Please note more residents voted 62 percent against the five variances requested by Incap — so much that it needed to have a super majority 75 percent of the city council members to vote in the higher density, 40 percent to 80 percent increase lot coverage, height increase from 30 feet to 36 feet, setbacks decreased from 25 feet to 15 feet, and stories increase from two to three.

"Again, the residents that live within the 500 foot boundary said no."
