RE: Application File No. REZ-22-93
2713 Bayshore Boulevard
The undersigned, residents, small businesses, and citizens, strongly oppose the above referenced application for rezoning. This is the wrong location for an imposingly tall building of 29 stories, 354.8 feet in height with 50 proposed units averaging 4500 square feet with 5 bedrooms and 6 ½ bathrooms each. We oppose any reduction to the required tree retention, removal of several meaningful grand live oaks, all requested waivers and bonus density.
The building will be located in a FEMA flood zone located in a Coastal High Hazard Flood Area and may have an adverse effect on storm evacuation times and overburden the hurricane evacuation routes and shelter capacity integral to the health and safety of residents and add to the overburdened Bayshore Boulevard corridor. A staff report sites concerns of stormwater overflow.
The design of the proposed development impinges on the privacy of the neighbors and small businesses in this community. The layout negatively and economically impacts onto the adjacent use of the well-loved Tampa Garden Club and compromises its ability to continue in its historic location as a garden club and an affordable wedding venue and the ability to provide all important county-wide community programs and philanthropic support. Failure to consider scale, design and layout may result in adverse impacts to this neighborhood that are irreversible.
Please deny this application!
