Sustany – what you need to know

In the Justification document it reads, “It is establishing a community pattern on the land that will be in place for many decades. We consider the development of the Sustany community as a 5-generation plan, one that will be viable and sustainable for over 100 years. “

Do we really want an urban sprawl development like this that will last 100 years and 5 generations. There are 800 acres of buildable land on this property and 2,500 proposed houses so on average each house will be one third acre. That’s cookie cutter HOA type urban sprawl communities.Those houses will go for $300k and up to probably a million. Who can afford that?

And then there is the statement that reads, “a walkable and bikeable community anchored by a Community Center with small additional Neighborhood Centers is the key to walkability. People need to be able to walk or bike to interesting and attractive destinations”.

What interesting and attractive destinations? And what bikeable or walkability? There are no shops and there is no multi-modal transportation planned. I suppose people can walk around the neighborhood or bike in it but that’s not walkable or bikeable. No one can commute to work by walking or bike and if this goes the way of the last one, not a single word about Lynx. So how do people get around? By car of course and where? Lake Pickett, N. Tanner, McCulloch and Hwy 50 which are already congested.

How in the world can they possible suggest this development? I certainly don’t want to see a development like this built that will concrete itself into place for 100 years.
