Say "No" to building Industrial building in Residential area

In response to the current proposed change of zoning for the proposed Animal Shelter and Hospital from Residential to Commercial/Industrial, we residents are opposed. The residents of the area are not against animals but against consideration of the council to consider putting one in such an already trafficked area. Most of the residents have pets and love animals but have to deal with traffic congestion daily. It should be noted that a
Veterinary Hospital is not needed in NW Fresno as we already have HOPE Animal Foundaton, All Creatures Veterinary Clinic, and Pamoist Pet Hospital within a close distance.

The proposed site is in a currently traffic constricted area and will contribute further to this problem we face daily. The traffic flow and commuters are restricted by only having two egresses over 99, W. Shaw & W. Herndon. This also directly impacts Emergency Medical Services in response to emergencies. Our infrastructure is outdated and no life-line is being thrown to the NW Fresno district 2 residents. The approval of such an addition, namely an animal shelter, is proposed on Grantland Ave near the Hwy 99 South ramp (single lane), next to the Dante Club, next to and across the street from 2 churches and County residential homes, which will undoubtedly add to the current traffic congestion.

The proposed project, if built, will also sit catty-corner to Herndon-Barstow Elementary where traffic bottlenecks on the single lane road. It now becomes a safety issue for children, parents, and school transportation vehicles. Even more importantly, per Dept. of Public Health, Fresno Humane Animal Services does not perform background checks on volunteers. This is of great concern considering the elementary school is within walking distance.

If you agree with these issues and would like to show your support, please sign this petition. We residents do not need or want a commercial zoning in our traffic congested area and protest the changing of the zoning to commercial from residential for any business.

Update #44 years ago
The vote didn't go as we would have liked OCT. 23 but Don't be discouraged by the Board of Supervisors vote last week, that was completely political. Much has been mitigated from what the project was initially proposed. Borgeas put items on the record to assist with legal battle. We have items in the works. A non-profit for "Forgotten Fresno" is in the works and we're accepting financial contributions to assist with legal fees. For donations please contact Elisa, Mark & JR before 11/4/18 thanks
