Ferdie to Bob

    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    If the area is zoned residential, then the rules were clear when residents paid $700,000+ for their homes. Why should they be expected to allow changes now? Maybe another neighbor could build a gas station to service the traffic? The golf course was undoubtedly part of the plan from the beginning.

    I was long winded but I really believe using traffic as an argument against something is not a winner.


    That may be true, but if it is zoned, they don't need a reason beyond they don't want to change the chemistry that they bought into. And maybe traffic, no matter how insignificant, is enuf to oppose changing the zoning laws. It would be for me.


    The only question I see in your piece, Diane, is whether or not anyone complained when they subdivided the land and my hunch is yes. As former Chair of a municipal P&Z commission I can assure you somebody ALWAYS complains.

    To the point at hand, the P&Z commission has very little latitude when it comes to applying the city comprehensive plan and ordinance.

    You did quote an alderman, who by virtue of being elected, is free to vote as he sees fit and as he believes is in the best interest of the city.

    IMH the whole traffic thing is worn out and overused ;)

    Not to be hurtful to Mr. Moore, but I don't see a cultural library becoming at all viable or attracting much interest.
