Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to sign a petition opposing the upzoning of 2024 Durant and 2025 Channing to commercial zoning, and to oppose the six-to-eight story private luxury dorm proposed to replace the 2024 Durant church building. The dorm will block light to the seniors and significantly increase traffic and parking demands in the area, which will be dangerous to the seniors, other neighborhood residents, and bicyclists on the Channing bicycle avenue. Most of the senior apartments facing the church are studio apartments with only one window–their light will be blocked from dawn to 9AM or possibly 11AM, and they may have to keep their curtains closed for privacy and their window closed to keep out noise if the six-to-eight story dorm is built next door.
