Another smart growth issue (1-008) related to a request to up-zone 40 acres, mostly zoned as rural conservation, between Jonnycake and Dogwood roads. This was done at the bequest of a $4,000 Quirk campaign donor represented by Gildea, Schmidt, and Smith who raised thousands upon thousands for this councilperson. Approximately a third of this parcel will reside in the catch zone of the proposed Red Line's terminus and needed to be up-zoned. The remainder, however, should have maintained its rural conservation zoning to keep its value low in order to facilitate an open space acquisition. The County Master Plan shows this general area as a target for high density development. The plan also states that we should acquire "parklands and recreational sites" specifically "within and/or in close proximity" to areas "where population growth will be concentrated" to "promote walkability and sustainability." Councilperson Quirk's decision to up-zone 30 acres of this parcel to Office Technology, therefore, is in direct opposition to the stated open space and smart growth goals of the Master Plan.
