Public Hearing Canceled

November 9, 2010 by Dominic Genetti

City of Willow ParkTonight's public hearing at the Willow Park Planning and Zoning Commission meeting has been canceled.

The commission was to discuss an area of the city behind the Brookshire's grocery store that involved the development of a high-end apartment complex. After an estimated 100 citizens were going to attend tonight's meeting opposing the apartments, the property owner, based in San Francisco, withdrew the application.

Willow Park Century 21 Realtor Paul Scharbach, who is handling the establishment of the land locally, said that pursuing the complex project and attending tonight's meeting would be like "walking into a bee hive."

I don't care if they are supposed to be "nice" apartments.

If they have low occupancy the owner will take vouchers to fill them up. The developer is from California, he or she has no interest in our community other than making money.

Also remember that people that live in apartments pay no property taxes. So they will use our resources and contribute none back.

Everyone keep an eye on the situation and make sure it does not arise again.
