First, this story really could use a map, diagram, or annotated aerial photo.

Second, what are all those people in City Hall being paid to do if not to anticipate this sort of problem and make sure it is addressed during the development and approval process? Don't get me wrong; I'm all for property owners being able to do as they wish with their bought-and-paid-for property, but the way the system seems to really work now is that small fish get told "no" while big fish do as they please.

Hi I live at Oak Tree Commons. As usual, the city, the developer don't really care what the people who use these establishments really want. Why is there now a problem about parking when there hasn't been one before? Why put in a fence at all? Why not barbed wire and a concrete bunker? The effect would be the same.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
