One look at why and how zoning has become a focus of property owners.

If this is not behind a pay wall, here's a think piece about how property owner opinions on their rights to have a say in community development evolved. While it doesn't set out to change anybody's opinion, having it in mind helps me understand why I hold certain value judgments. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/03/upshot/zoning-housing-property-rights-nimby-us.html?comments#permid=25419406

    How 'Not in My Backyard' Became 'Not in My Neighborhood'
    In Seattle, the neighbors don't want apartments for formerly homeless seniors nearby. In Los Angeles, they don't want more high-rises. In San Jose, Calif., they don't want tiny homes. In Phoenix, they don't want design that's not midcentury modern.

Coyote sighting

It’s Dec 11th and at 8am I saw a large coyote running around the block. It looked scared, tail down and ears back, and seemed to attempting to find a place to hide. I called 911 who sent me to 311. Last seen running northbound on Neva from Wellington. Animal Control has been notified.

Rich's Fresh Market Stinks?

Is "Rich's Fresh Market" a grocery store or a smokers lounge?

    This seems more appropriate for a yelp review or the business's website. A random post here won't do much good and likely will solve nothing.

change in water temp and pressure

Anyone else notice a significant change in water shower temp and pressure? I haven't changed the water heating setting but noticed that it's taking much longer for the water to heat up and the pressure is not as strong.

I noticed a lot of sewer projects in the area over the past few months and wonder if that's the cause. I live near Sayre school.

  • I thought we were the only ones with that problem here in Galewood.

  • Might be time to change the tank deposits build up in the bottom after a long time and it works harder to heat up the water

    Sewer work might effect water pressure, but temperature is directly related to your hot water tank. Sounds like it may be time for a new one.
