Submitted by ANGELnWard14 on Wed, 04/21/2010 - 00:06.


While you weren't paying attention....or being publicly notified....things have been transpiring right in front of you... See the City Record for 4/14/2010 regarding the change of use redistricting of the areas near Seymour/W30th/West 25th/Erin and then around State/Pearl.

Or maybe we just missed all those public notices/planning meetings about the development...

 

As of 04/14/2010....your councilman  Brian Cummins presented plans to change the area with maps and all.... are you paying attention to this development and does it affect your neighborhood?

Residence Industry zoning

What does this rezoning mean to the area West 30th and Seymour?  I agree Angel.  Communication is non-existent.  I will go to BCCA meeting this Thursday at Brooklyn Memorial Methodist Church and report back. 

I am also very concerned that the Councilman appears to be backing out of the Section 106 plan that residents worked out with Art House to save historic front buildings on Denison Ave. 

W. 30th & Seymour has someone doing industrial operations now

 At the corner of W. 30th and Seymour, there is a large lot surrounded by neatly trimmed shrubs. Behind those shrubs are a company that uses heavy equipment (earth mover type stuff and dump trucks. I have not seen a name on the trucks). The gates are posted with beware of dog signs.

There are a number of near by vacant lots.

So what is up here? Who owns that company and does the owner live near by? The neighborhood is residential with the exception of a hair-fixing place at 28th that is in a house. Have the neighbors been spoken to by Cummins to see how they feel about this change from residential to a combination? How would long time residents feel about a change like this? What has motivated this change? Is Cummins hoping to bring in small businesses or has he cut a behind the scenes deal for someone?

Transparency is a beautiful thing, and let us keep it real here.
