Good news. I think that, based on the variances Council has granted in the past, this applicant had every reason to expect that their variance request would be granted -- especially with staff and PC recommending approval.
Glad to see that in the end, the social stigma of marijuana did not cause this applicant to be treated unfairly.
There are always growing pains involved with something like this, and I'll be shocked if any of the scenarios envisioned by opponents of this request actually come to pass.
I find Ford and Sloop's rationales dubious based on their prior-stated reasons for opposing this request, but at least they're rooted in the code now.
Time will tell, but I'm glad this small, local business now has a better chance to succeed in a place where potential current and future customers would reasonably expect such a business to be located.
I go by other parents and administrators, and I've only heard from people who really liked her and thought she was doing a great job.
It sounds like she was trying to prepare these kids, particularly girls, to escape encounters with dangerous men. Part of this involved showing strong body language and using expletives, which was somehow uncool with a couple kids who just happened to be those of Wiggins and another deputy. Something here doesn't add up IMHO. I guess we'll find out soon enough.
So far, I haven't heard anything concrete regarding this odor argument. Personally, I only notice when I get to within a few feet of the door of Golden Leaf, which is the only shop I go near. Sounds about par for the course, if you ask me.
I didn't hear a cogent argument from Russell. How is it a family-friendly shopping center while it has a liquor store, but somehow it won't be if we add a pot shop?
I might actually have to show up to this meeting.
No one finds it odd that the complaints about her language use only came from children of Wiggins and another deputy?
"Good Gates Make Good Neighbors."
Just gets you right there, doesn't it?
I think these people should be perfectly free to lock their gate if they want, but that headline says it all.
He seems to work well with various groups around town, and staff likes him. He seems accessible and straight-up.
Except for the further securing airports stuff. Oh, I get that because of Brussels they want to focus more on unsecured portions of the airport, but they're incompetent at securing the "secure" portions, so what's this gonna do?
James nailed it on that last comment. Ever wonder where we'd be if medicine wasn't ruled by the "free" market?
Anyway, these seem like common-sense items that shouldn't even need to be spelled out. Pretty pathetic that this bill even has to exist.
Aah, I see.
Obviously, a majority of council members believed there was enough of a conflict to demand that he recuse himself. I think that says something right there. I'd bet that doesn't happen too often.
