Petition Background

ESPAÑOL MÁS ABAJO

The Matthews Board of Commissioners is considering a zoning petition submitted by Matthews Ventures LLC, together with the consulting firm Moore & Van Allen. If approved, the area will be rezoned to allow apartment complexes to be built on the property where we currently live.

In order to build these apartments, our families will have to move our homes, so that the land can be developed for these apartments. Many of our homes are too old to move. We would have to leave them behind, losing all we have invested in them. The rest of us would have to pay thousands of dollars that we don't have to move the homes that can be moved.

We are hardworking families that moved to this area, because it is affordable and most importantly the good schools for our children. This is a nice tranquil area to raise our families.

Help us stop the gentrification of the area where we live. #SaveOurHomes #SaveOakhaven

La Junta de Comisionados de Matthews está considerando una petición de zonificación sometida por la compañía Matthews Ventures LLC, junta con la firma de consulta Moore & Van Allen. Si aprobada, las reglas de zonificación de la area donde vivimos serán cambiadas para permitir que se construyan complejos de apartamentos en la propiedad donde actualmente vivimos.

Para poder construir estos apartamentos, nuestras familias tendrían que mover nuestros hogares. Muchas de estas casas son demasiado viejas para mover. Tendríamos que dejarlas, perdiendo todo lo que hemos invertido en ellas. Los que sobramos tendríamos que pagar miles de dólares que no tenemos para mover las casas que si se pueden mover.

Somos familias trabajadoras, las cuales nos mudamos a la area porque es económica y mas importante por las buenas escuelas para nuestros hijos. Es una zona tranquila para criar a nuestras familias.

Ayúdennos parar el aburguesamiento de la area donde vivimos. #SalvenNuestrasCasas #SalvenOakhaven
