I love this discussion. I am glad folks have an interest in this.
I believe that the council should resist any move or development which results in the devaluation of our property or a glut in retail investments. For Pete's Sake, Target will not even open a unit here because it is not economically viable. Get a clue and protect your constituents. BTW - I am pro-growth as long as it is beneficial to the community.
I applaud the Council for making the right decision on this matter. If you look around the country at places where people want to live you will see communities that restrict and manage growth. These electronic gambling business ( I have no moral opinion on them ) are a bad thing. They are usually trashy joints which end up attracting undesirables and require tax dollars to be spent in the form of a constant law enforcement presence in the immediate area.
The only thing I find odder than the misguided beliefs of the property owner is the way the story is written. Who cares about his fireworks store?
It is so nice the way this issue brings out the bigots. Mr. Picerno should be really pleased with himself.
