Been busy at work and at home and haven’t had much time to blog. There was an interesting P&Z Meeting Monday night where a developer wanted to increase the density of his partially built subdivision. I think under normal circumstances, he might have gotten his request, but it seems this developer mismanaged his jobsite and ended up flooding some neighbors yards and houses. There was a full house of residents at the meeting that weren’t very happy.
I asked the developer if he felt he had been a good neighbor? His response? Yeah, you guessed it, he felt he was. When I asked if it was him that had come home to find 4″ of water in your front yard, would he then feel that the developer was a good neighbor? His answer then was different. Worse, word from City Staff was that it took some arm twisting by the City to get them to clean up their mess.
I will admit, the developer has some Rod Blagojevich cojones for even asking for the zoning change though.
Beware the video is not work or kid friendly.
