I would like to applaud the 4 council persons that listened to their constituents and voted no to this request. It was the right thing to do for the community. I am also very proud of all the citizens that took the time to engage their government, research the topic and provide input on this matter. When residents engage, government responds and we all benefit.

I listened to the meeting last night and was deeply disturbed by the disorganization of Council-- both on this issue and the Marhoffer legislation. What is it that you do before the meetings, Mr. Rasor? Do you like to spring these amendments on your colleagues at the last minute to look like a super-lawyer out to save the day? Mr. Lowdermilk-- at no point during the last 6 months did you notice that the title of the bill was incorrect? And Mr. Reihl, you promised some of us that you wouldn't vote for the Marhoffer zoning change. What you didn't say is that you didn't plan to vote on ANYTHING. Way to stick up for your constituents. Anyway, I am very pleased that my neighbors worked so hard to get their opinions across on these two proposals - on both sides of the issue - and hope that they'll continue to stay engaged in the future.
