I just received a notice in the mail that developer of the land just next to my new home is trying to get it re-zoned to allow multi-family residential development. I am invited to a public hearing in a few weeks, but don't even know where to begin to make a case against this. Does anyone have any experience fighting a similar re-zoning regulation? Do I need a strong case to support my reasons, or is a decrease in my property value enough of a case? My biggest concern is that we are in a new neighborhood with only about 12 out of 40 lots sold at this time, and therefore that is the maximum number of people that could go to the hearing to protest. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
