To: Onamia City Council
We the adjacent property owners, as signified by our
signatures to this letter demand that the City of Onamia discontinue the
rezoning of the 38 acres annexed from Bradbury Township as R-2 .
The minimum requirements, as stated under the
"Administration" section of the city ordinance is to promote public health,
safety, and welfare. We do not agree with the ordinance change, allowing
residential sexual treatment facilities for minors as a permitted use in an
R-2. Single family, multi
family, and juvenile sex offenders do
not go together, and it definitely does not promote public health, safety
The purposed changes that you have made to your zoning
ordinances to accommodate Nexus, and the manner in which you have handled
this process are in direct violation of the City of Onamia ordinances.
The City Council of Onamia has given no consideration to the
economic or psychological impact that this project will have on the
adjoining property owners. Public meetings have been held as a requirement
of law only. The input garnered from these meetings was never intended to be
used to make an informed decision as to the wisdom or appropriateness of
this project and the adverse affect it would have on us.
Again we ask the city council not to move ahead with the
rezoning of this property until a planning commission has been established
as stated in the Onamia City Ordinances.
When the planning commission has been established the
commission can then work through the process to properly zone this property.
Nothing anyone said would
have any effect on the Onamia City Council. They had already made up their
minds long before citizens even knew that there was a scheme in the works.
Nexus would build on the Bye property in Bradbury Township.
There was nothing anybody
could do to stop them.
They disregarded state laws
and changed their own ordinances to benefit Nexus.
They acted in secret.
They acted without
Five men on a corrupt small
town city council had the power to ruin everything for the Bradbury
neighbors who couldn't vote them out of office or run against them.
