We need THOUSANDS not hundreds
We we have been trying to convince our lawmakers that we are for the responsible development of our land and that we don't want Taylor Morrison to be allowed to rezone the area across from Apache Wash and put in 1400 new homes.
During this journey, we have been told time and time again that it is not hundreds that will convince our lawmakers to vote no to the Taylor Morrison rezoning. Given this, I encourage everyone to reach out to the following lawmakers and let them know how you feel.
Feel free to use the script below:
"My name is (your name), I live in (ZIP). I support Save Our Sonoran Preserve and I believe in the responsible and sustainable development of the desert in Arizona. This means maintaining existing zoning of the preserve. Please vote no on the MacEwan 480 rezoning request put forward by Taylor Morrison. This rezoning negatively impacts our preserve and will set precedent for future home builders to put in higher density housing around the preserve.
The case numbers are as follows: Z-62-18-2 Z-TA-5-18-2 Z-75-18-2
Thank you, and PLEASE vote NO!"
