Vote AGAINST Rezoning 1200 and 1204 MLK

Stackhouse Properties told the town of Chapel Hill that if they do not get zoning approval to erect a four-story self-storage facility on the property they own at 1200 and 1204 MLK Jr. Blvd., they will sell the property and have already received an offer from a buyer who likely will evict the 70+ families who live in the Tar Heel Mobile Home Park (MBH) that currently occupies the site.
