Your Turn: City earns anti-development reputation

And another well written article (among many) of reasons the K10 Crossing really was denied. I appreciate the great thought and stats Marsha, Chad and other have published in the last 2 weeks. It would be nice if the commission would address these issues with the public! People are shaking their heads in wonder at the recent activities voted in and down.

Letter: Wary of vote

I totally agree Mr. Sengpiehl. I would like a lot better explanation of this but I have to think it all boils down to the Mercado group and the interests of the groups owning land in West Lawrence around RC.

Editorial: Not prepared?

Thanks Chad!
Everyone really wants auto related development ! Not. I think the commission owes K10, the planning division and all of us an apology. Why did they give out the hint this could be approved and then pull the rug after a lot of work and time were spent on this??? Their excuses should have been given and dealt with long ago, not Tuesday.

That is exactly where they are trying to force the developers. I hope they do not go but sooner or later after all the denials they will

My understanding was they are changing from AUTO Commercial to RETAIL Commercial, I see no need to auto and most of the dealers have recently redesigned their dealerships. Being a college town there are always students at the HS and college looking for jobs and experience. Yes, there are few well paying jobs here but this is not going to change that......

As always well said Chad!!!! I wish you could have asked these well thought out and researched questions on Tuesday BEFORE they could throw this entire project down the drain. Why were these issues not brought up even back when they downsized hoping for approval? I have talked to so many in the last 2 days that were quite amazed this was rejected. I guess we will all vote again but it is too late for this. I believe it is denial due to their desire to force business to Rock Chalk and who that will benefit. Then we can have a "White Lakes" type area as all business will go there from South Lawrence. Great planning City Commission.
Their own Planning Committee recommended this!!!!!
