Country Club Road is a residential community, with winding tree lined roads, quiet neighborhoods, and open lands. The Proposal is incompatible with the current and future development of the Country Club Road Community. It does not comply with the Comprehensive Plan or land use designations. Assisted Living Facilities are commercial operations - the "other non-residential uses."
The present amount of residences on Country Club Road is an average of 2.87 residences per acre. The proposal is to more than DOUBLE the amount of residences per acre, with up to 400 residences, not including large parking lots, clubhouses, cabanas, pools, tennis courts, bungalows, nature learning center, "Amenity Building," OR the "other non-residential uses."
Portions of the existing Outback Oasis becomes a Neighborhood Activity Center/"Recreational Amenity"/"Clubhouse," that will include the addition of 5,000 sq. ft. "Amenity Building/event venue/clubhouse," and other "permitted uses" such as a gift shop, nature learning center, kangaroo shelter, and exhibition of Class I, II, or III wildlife. The Assisted Living Facility/PUD includes "recreational amenities and other supporting community facilities and other non-residential uses."
Up to 400 "dwelling units"/residences are planned that have maximum heights and number of floors incompatible with the homes along Country Club Road including:
The new road to the Assisted Living Facility/PUD to be privately built will NOT be connected to Dundee Road. There will be a NEW entrance to Outback Oasis. All entry/exits including emergency exits will be on Country Club Road. It will require adding a right and left turn lane at a blind curve on Country Club Road. No traffic light will be added at Country Club Road and Dundee Road in the foreseeable future. Traffic will increase dramatically from staff/employees, event attendees, cargo deliveries, and emergency vehicles.
From 9 am to 11 pm 7 days a week Outback Oasis/Neighborhood Activity Center will increase the amount of noise every night and weekend when families and neighbors are home. Noise from events, semi-tractor trailers, emergency vehicles, commercial air conditioners, and large back-up generators will be heard 24 hours, 7 days a week.
