You can't fight city hall? - Paint It Black
Living the American dream one heartbreaking piece at a time
You can't fight city hall?
I call bullshit on that! I dare say I got the zoning and planning commission's full attention with my petition, which represented a one hundred percent opposition to the proposed project from all the neighbors adjoining the parcel in question, and a seventy-six percent opposition from homes across the street and nearby. When the vote came the entire commission bowed out, tabling the issue and asking the construction firm to hold a meeting with the neighborhood to see if a compromise can be reached.

The phrase that paid tonight? "If the residents don't buy into this, you can scrap this development plan."

The upcoming three weeks are going to be a very interesting time in this neighborhood.

Awesome! I'm not sure what project it was that got you all up in arms, but it's great that you were able to defend your homes. Good to know if anything untoward ever happens with the (presently unused) parcel of land just down the street from me. :D

That's fantastic! You're very fortunate that the building commission is attentive to the homeowners' desires. That's going to definitely work in your favor as time goes by.
