Since they're friends of mine and I know they don't want to think bullshit stuff, I'd like to tell them their thinking is bullshit but I need a little more than that.
Can you expand on it a little bit?
Sure. I've spoken to dozens of friends, neighbors and business owners on the Northside about this situation and have yet to encounter a single person who had heard a single thing about this plan until after the decision had been made.
There was one meeting, held without the normal notice to the neighborhood, back in October, and then it was over. This is something that's being done to my neighborhood, not by my neighborhood, or for my neighborhood.
Well, that trumps the five people I know who attended more than one meeting, followed the process, and made their opinions known. Ya got me there.
I haven't seen any of 'em for a few days but next time I do I'll ask 'em how many meetings they attended.
