Ord 18-17 5/23/2018 7:52 AMPatty George Ward 4 Against I forgot to mark AGAINST vote on my previous statement.
Ord 18-17 5/23/2018 7:43 AMPatty George ward 4   I do not understand how any of this rezoning is acceptable when we were never notified with a rezoning postcard.? My business is across the street at 856 Raymond Ave, I never received notice of any neighborhood or city council meetings, until I happened upon them because of me inquiring about ORD 18-18. ORD 18-17 is still next to me and will affect my on street parking. So now my neighborhood that I planned on staying for 30-40years is cutoff, because developers decide they can think for others. This is another battle I do not have fight in any longer. Ord. 18-18 is big enough. Please recognize 6 story buildings next to 1 story or 2story houses that DO NOT BELONG. Put in development that is more in scale of our neighbor hood. We are not on University and North of Raymond and yet I cannot advertise on because I am out of the zoning. Tell me this is fair for the residents and businesses in our area? +1 -1

Ord 18-17 5/23/2018 5:16 AMRaymond C. Bryan Against ment to accept provisos that meet neighborhood goals like energy self-reliance, green space, landscaping, setback from streets or existing structures, building height/m***ing, exterior building material/esthetics treatments, environmental concerns (see the guidlines that SAPCC has drafted and is in process of dating/revising). Simply rezoning on speculation, throws away all such leverage before any developer or plans come forward. And this neighborhood has seen a whole lot of dashed hopes and broken promises by developers over the past 44 years. This neighborhood has been an "urban village" for many years maybe since the arrival of "heavy rail transit" to the area. It has been a mixed use neighborhood for all of my life and my residence at birth was walking distance from Les & Rod's Market on Raymond Ave just off campus. Don't remember that? In that era there were small grocery stores at intervals of 3 to 6 blocks all over St. Anthony Park. 4 of them between Long and University. +1
Ord 18-17 5/23/2018 4:47 AMRaymond C. Bryan Against I have contest the city staff claim that this parcel was put forth as appropriate for T3 zoning. I was a representative from D12CC (SAPCC) to the station area plan process for Carlton and Westgate stations. The models that were done in that planning as I recall them, did not show 6 story buildings along Raymond Avenue north of Territorial and in fact the in conformance with our existing (and still in force plan of 2005 until the city ratifies recent changes) showed 6 story residential/commercial development along and either side of University to at most 1 block north or south of University except .5 miles from the station (Carlton to Pillsbury at University). Here is the humongous elephant in the room not being considered staff or commission; handing out a zoning change (or CUP to lesser extent) is meant to provide neighbors a lever to bring developers to the current stakeholders neighbors, residents, business owners and tenants to where these stakeholders get to persuade developme +2
Ord 18-17 5/23/2018 2:05 AMLinda Bryan Against The neighboring homes and businesses feel this zoning change has been run through, without proper examination of the implications this T3 zoning will bring forth. We received notice after their other parcel had already been rezoned to T3, and other residents and businesses near Baker Court had nor received any notice of the change. If you polled the small businesses & residents within a two blocks radius of Baker Court, I think you’d find that most of them oppose these T3 rezonings. Especially at that corner, the increased building height would be out of character with the existing neighborhood, and more suited to a location on University Avenue. Developers are drawn to our neighborhood for its urban charm, but are then willing to destroy that charm to meet their development needs. +2
