Some pictures of New Garden Road where it meets Garden Lake Drive. This area seen in the pictures was the subject of a major rezoning case pitting an established neighborhood up against the development community and as you can see who won this battle. If you would like to see the Greensboro News and Record article CLICKHERE , also there was a debatables blog with some insight on some of the attitudes in the area CLICKHERE . Where is that Advisory Commission on Trees?
Now it seems like a new fight with the Greensboro City Council is brewing right down the road where a group of neighbors formed a coalition called
Friends of New Garden to see their web site CLICKHERE .
Friends of New Garden Road is a group of neighborhood residents opposed to the rezoning of 4.69 acres at 1807 and 1809 New Garden Road between Timberoak/Strathmore and Jefferson/Will Doskey to commercial to allow the construction of an "Event Center for weddings and similar parties."
This seems like dejavu all over again, and to add to the usual suspects in this case the lawyer is none other than Derek Allen, who was the same lawyer in the Garden Lake rezoning case.
September 16, 2008 the Greensboro City Council will hear this case and it will be interesting to see where the city stands.
Ever since Jefferson Pilot and David Stonecipher went on a asset plundering game , New Garden Road was never the same. Thanks David you were so loved and admired by many in Greensboro.We should rename New Garden Road the David Stonecipher Over Developed Commercial Traffic Jam.
