Tonight’s council meeting may be another “must-see TV”
Rentway’s request is for interior changes only and would not affect the façade. The attorney for the Plaza’s management company argued that this is a sort of test case to see if the City is going to cooperate before the company moves ahead with further improvements and/or exercises its option to purchase the entire property. Is Mayor Williams on the money with his concern that this request represents an “it’ll-get -piecemealed-out” approach to the Norwood Plaza? This looks like a tough call council is going to have to make on this ordinance:
A) ORDINANCE DENYING THE APPLICATION FOR ALTERATIONS AND EXPANSION OF THE RENTWAY STORE LOCATED AT 3855 MONTGOMERY ROAD, NORWOOD, OHIO 45212, PURSUANT TO THE RECOMMENDATION OF PLANNING COMMISSION
1/24/07 UPDATE: This turned out not to be a tough call at all last night. With not much discussion, council voted 6-1 to pass the ordinance after the 2nd and 3rd readings. Mr. Schneider was the dissenting vote.
