Last month, the West Norwood Neighborhood Association reconvened in response to residents’ concerns that predatory businesses could occupy vacant commercial properties on Montgomery Rd. Their newly elected officers sent this letter to City Council and other elected officials asking for a legal mechanism to prevent these types of businesses. It appears the most likely mechanism in the short term is for the City to use is a moratorium. In fact, a moratorium of 6-months duration was placed on last night’s City Council meeting agenda for consideration but was withdrawn early in the meeting for reasons that are not clear.
WNNA invites all residents who are concerned about the issue to attend their meeting next Wednesday, March 16 at 7:30 p.m. in the Holy Trinity Undercroft on Montgomery Rd. Please use the parking lot side entrance.
