More broken promises from 85th and Minnesota

One of the promises to the housing neighbors of the new Walmart on the Southside was that there would be a business office buffer between them and Walmart, as you can see with plans for a new Hardee’s that promise went by the wayside, with all the other promises.

Is that Hardee’s or Scarlett’s?

Government can’t promise someone NOT to follow the law.

Lol, where is the Flyin’ J gonna be?

walmart is on southwest corner of intersection- that is a bank/office building presented there as a buffer; those people had no control of what happens north of the street and that owner was not part of any deal

People live out that far to get further away from city commercialism and blight. It’s no surprise the Fire Chief lives 20 miles away in Canton. It’s far enough away that it can’t reach him.

If you look at the current zoning map, that proposed Hardee’s is further east than it appears on that graphic. That area on the east side of Audie is zoned LW. A fast food restaurant wouldn’t be an allowable use in that category. It’d need to be in one of the areas zoned C-3.

The Reliabank across the street is in an area zoned O, also an appropriate buffer for single-family residential.

There’s nothing to see here.

5 Walfarts for a city of 160k tells me zoning doesn’t really exist. There’s a pawn shop and gun range in a junky building across from Denny Dome. Planning and zoning needs their own logo like Parks. My God, they approved a crossed swords tribute to Saddam Hussein across the Sioux Sliver.

. . . and Planning & Zoning permits an ugly industrial park & rural area-only appropriate new steel Morton building to be erected on the busiest commercial thoroughfare in town – see Motor City used car lot 1800 W. 41 St. To add insult to injury, this dive can’t even be bothered to landscape in front of their business. It’s been mud & weeds for months.
