Planning Commission keeps height limit

The city Planning Commission once again showed its support for a 10-story maximum downtown height limit by voting 4-3 for the measure. The issue now goes to the city council, which will have the final say.

And once more, the commission was also slated to approve approximately 850 home lots on the fringes of the city tonight. So, while they refuse to let our downtown develop and become more attractive, they will allow these suburban "cookie cutter" houses, which will probably cause many more problems (like traffic and school overcrowding) than 25-story buildings ever will with their "shadows."
