My side of town, the west side, has been in the spotlight down at City Hall lately. Within the past several weeks I've received 2 letters from attorneys' offices notifying me and my neighbors of upcoming rezoning proposals - both of them just to the east of me off of Rucker.
Also within the past month I found notices taped to my mailbox asking me and all my neighbors to protest a request to rezone to high density the Ferguson/Cromen propert(ies) on Rucker Road across from the Catholic church.
Then, I find out that tonight (this is Monday afternoon as I write this), there is a meeting at City Hall where residents can give feedback about what to do with Rucker Road.
What to do with Rucker Road?
Well, you can start by disallowing all these proposed high-density re-zonings off of Rucker Road. We can live with Rucker as it is; but adding more and more and more traffic via new subdivisions?
Evidently the Rucker Road corridor is the new high-density darling.
As some of us know, what to do with Rucker Road is not a new question, but actually goes way back into the early 1990's, possibly even before that; I'll have to go examine some archives to confirm that. Strangely, Rucker Road remains Rucker Road. I have lived in a single family residential piece of acreage on Rucker Road and now I live in a subdivision off of Rucker Road. Either way, Rucker is at capacity and I don't want to see the situation worsen.
I seem to recall that a certain someone down at City Hall campaigned against high-density in Alpharetta. You know who you are.
