Cancel Baldwin County Project No. 0202408 sign now

Whereas:

1. Baldwin County Project No. 0202408: New Road Construction Grade, Drain, Base, Pave and Bridge I-10 Service Road from Woodrow Lane to BassPro Drive for the Baldwin County Commission, and;

2. This project will likely result in commercial development of the land known as Magnolia 9 in the TimberCreek Golf and Residential Sub-division leading to detrimental effects on the surrounding community, including increased through traffic on TimberCreek Boulevard, harm to local businesses in the Eastern Shore Center and Spanish Fort, noise pollution, light pollution and a negative impact on neighborhood integrity, and;

3. Construction of the Service Road will negatively affect environmental quality including pollution and/or destruction of the DOlive Creek watershed and;

4. Would be in direct contradiction to the objectives set forth in Horizon 2025, Baldwin Countys Comprehensive Plan 2008-2025 namely:

Chapter 4: Conservation, Natural Resources & Open Space Element

The Conservation, Natural Resources and Open Space Element of the Countys Plan provide the framework for the preservation, protection and wise use of the Countys natural resources. The intent of this element is to provide a basis for effective decision-making regarding the appropriate use of natural resources when faced by increasing growth and urban development, in addition to the identification and preservation of important ecological systems.

Environmental Goal 4.1: Baldwin County shall continue to plan for the protection, conservation, management, and appropriate use of the natural resources found in Baldwin County.

Resource Protection Goal 4.6: To manage the wetland and upland ecosystems located in Baldwin County so as to maintain and enhance native habitats, diversity of floral and faunal species, water quality, and natural surface water characteristics.

Objective 4.6.1: The County will continue to implement a resource management program that ensures the long-term protection and enhancement of the natural upland and wetland habitats through the retention of interconnected, functioning, and maintainable hydro-ecological systems; and

5. East/West vehicular movement between Alabama Highway 181 and U.S. Highway 98 is already amply served with Interstate 10, U.S. Highway 90 and U.S. Highway 31 all within a distance of 1 miles. A $17 million project to widen Highway 31 is due to start in September 2010, and;

6. The original authorization for the project was based on the building of the Mobile Infirmary which has since been cancelled, and;

7. Any further commercial development would likely be massively under subscribed as witnessed by the amount of empty commercial property currently in the nearby Jubilee Mall, BassPro development and Eastern Shore Centre, and therefore;

The residents of Baldwin County request that the Commissioners of Baldwin County cancel Project No. 0202408.
