Part 3: It Is Time for The Greensboro City Council To Take The TREBIC Blinders Off and Require Neighborhood Meetings

Let's take a look at what is on the Agenda for the Greensboro City Council meeting for 5-18-2010. Below is item #19 which after the zoning commission met on this matter it would have been wise for this applicant to go back to the drawing board here is the post which is part 2 CLICKHERE .If you would like to go back further here is what started this series now up to part 3 CLICKHERE for the original post.

Cyndy Hayworth talking about this case at the  zoning commission

Here is the agenda item below for the 5-18-2010 meeting of the Greensboro City Council Meeting.

19. Ordinance rezoning from RS-9 (Residential – Single Family) to CD-LB (Conditional District-Limited Business) for property located at 3500, 3502 and 3504 North Church Street, generally described as the northeast corner of the intersection of North Church Street and Denny Road. (Council District: 2) (roll call vote) (Attachment #19 (PL(Z) 10-06) to Councilmembers)

This applicant above never met with the surrounding neighbors before the zoning commission. One would hope that they have met with the surrounding property owners before they come in front of the Greensboro City Council. It would be great to hear a council member ask the question , when did you meet with the surrounding property owners? What are the concerns?Did anything come out of the meetings?

With all this talk about the new land development ordinance for the entire City of Greensboro and to see just how much the Triad Real Estate and Building Industry Coalition (TREBIC) wants to deny REQUIRED meetings with surrounding property owners in the zoning process. These past  posts now up to part 3 will show you what is wrong with the system and to hear these applicants say that they never met with the surrounding property owners is the topping on the cake. Dump the talk of meet and confer and actually make it a requirement to meet with surrounding property owners 2 to 3 weeks before it ever gets in front of the zoning commission.
