I live on 25 acres in southeast rural Nampa and I am concerned and very disappointed that the land bordering mine has been purchased for the intended purpose of the 44-home Lake Hazel Estates subdivision. This subdivision will be placed in the middle of productive farmland in both Canyon and Ada counties.
I have many issues with this proposal:
None of the surrounding property owners were notified of the planning for this subdivision.
This proposal will result in an urban-rural conflict trying to combine farming with living in town.
There will be an increase in both traffic and ambient noise created from a residential subdivision.
Human waste from 44 septic tanks could pollute the shallow groundwater that supplies the water for our domestic wells.
Lastly, this project is bound to compromise the irrigation water flow to the surrounding farmland. That will directly affect crop production and the financial well-being of landowners.
