we were extremely devastated to learn the 107 acres next to us that is now residentially zoned is being sold to build a hospital and will be rezoned institutional. our property butts right up next to this property.
we were notified from the planning commission that we could speak up about being for or against this a few days ago. the meeting is a week from today.
we have been told that the hospital MIGHT be interested in purchasing our 6 acres, but nothing has been signed or any $$$ for our property have been offered.
we know that this zoning will be pushed through since it is for the betterment of the community. then, our property will not be able to be sold to anyone wanting our home because no one would want to live next to a noisy hospital and have all the traffic and lights disturbing the peace.
we feel that if we cannot get a price agreed upon and signed before the rezoning takes place that we will have no leverage in our asking price. we fear will be given a take it or leave it offer.
if we were to actually get enough for us to relocate, we would not oppose the rezoning. the initial devastation we felt has subsided and we have accepted the fact that our lives will be changed forever. but, since we do not know what is going to happen about them buying us out, we do not know what to do. is there anything we can or should be doing right now?
we are just so upset over this. sleepless nights have been the rule. stress has taken a toll on our health. i will appreciate any thoughts any of you might give.
Please no teaser titles in the professional fourms. I edited the thread title to be less "urgent".
