“Hi, my name is __ and I am an Ocean Park (resident, homeowner, business owner).

Negative Impacts on Ocean Park

In accordance with the Shore Drive overlay a parcel of 4 acres or more can have 36 units per acre which is 144 not 227. The apartment complex would occupy 4 acres. Including Lynnhaven Marine, it is a 6 acre parcel so they have planned 227 units.

Environmental study needs to be performed to determine the impact on PHP .
