A few nights ago the Landsdowne Board of Directors voted to officially oppose a proposed development intended to construct 300 residential apartments located in the Hilltop Village area. The space is currently serving as the parking lot adjacent to Panda Express and was originally zoned for commercial use. The new proposal seeks to rezone the area for five story multi-family residential use apartments.
 
The BOD is concerned that the development will negatively impact Landsdowne in multiple ways and eventually reduce property values. Specifically:
 
1. The proposal is requiring a significant 50% increase to the Floor Area Ratio (FAR), which means a much larger structure than was originally planned for (5 stories rather than 3).
2. The increased residential use is not proportional with the open space and amenities currently servicing the area.
3. The increased traffic is a safety and congestion issue.
4. Parking concerns, especially extended use of Landsdowne and adjacent streets without additional investment (lights, curbsides etc.).
5. Concern that the type and size of the planned development does not fit with the surrounding community (townhomes and single-family homes vs. apartments).

The BOD is asking residents to do at least one of the actions listed below - which will greatly increase our chances of halting or modifying this project, but at a minimum please take 2 minutes to sign the petition.
 
1. Sign an online petition that will be delivered to our local elected officials that represent Landsdowne. To sign the petition please click on this link.
2. Send an email stating your opposition to the project. Please send all emails to one or more of our local representative listed below. Please reference the following plan code in your email: PC19-LE-005, HILLTOP VILLAGE SHOPPING CENTER.
