Cindy moved to Brookfield in 1994 with her husband and three children in tow. It's been a very interesting seventeen years.
Scott Jackson wants it. It's on the neighborhood plan. So instead of a rezoning, the plan commission is scheduled to pass it next week as change in operation.
1) My aldermen of Rick Owen and Bob Reddin seriously suck at their jobs. There's no way this should be on an agenda without neighbors knowing about it. I guess they are flat out lazy.
2) I've had a complaint filed with inspections about the same property for a couple of weeks. Although someone promised to get back to me, no one did. I guess I know why now.
The fact it's being slid in as a change in operation is important. A rezoning can be blocked with four no votes. I can rally those. A change in operation requires a simple majority. With this council, that's likely a done deal. First I need to compare the zoning to the square footage. Then I need to read if the "free standing" component will give me the room I need, as I thought the current zoning demands a contiguous building.
FYI City Hall, including Mayor Steven Ponto, I won't be walking away. There's no way that corner needs more density.
Love and stuff,
