Ord 19-12 3/15/2019 6:24 AMEric Lein Against For "mixed uses" (commercial/residential), the Saint Paul zoning code's minimum front yard setbacks are: BC = 25-feet; T2 = 0-feet. Today's existing front yard setback at 770 Grand aligns with its two easterly neighbors, is attractive, and is very much in keeping with Grand Avenue's historic character. Owners of 770 Grand should NOT be allowed to fill that parcel's front yard with new construction. If zoning at 770 Grand is changed from BC to T2, all future owners of that property will have been granted very strong incentives to eliminate the front yard by adding unattractive and inappropriate new construction. [e.g., 814 Grand -- see google streetview link: https://goo.gl/maps/gCGiL1u5NHk ] As a lifetime resident of St. Paul's Summit Hill and Ramsey Hill neighborhoods, and as the owner of four apartment buildings on Grand Ave. near Milton St., I sincerely hope that you will DENY THIS REZONING REQUEST. +2 -2 2
Ord 17-29 3/6/2019 10:32 PMCaitlin Stollenwerk Against This ordinance appears to have little support of the very people who would be most impacted by it: locally-owned restaurants that function with hairline margins and cannot absorb cost differentials like the ones created by this proposed ordinance. Why is this responsibility being foisted upon those least able to absorb it and those with the smallest impact, while large corporations are being exempted? The City of St. Paul has sought out a problem and inserted itself into the lives of its citizens as the only solution. If plastic packaging is so detrimental to the environment that this ordinance must p*** immediately to stave off an environmental apocalypse, then the City should enforce it universally, and not just on the small businesses that make St. Paul extraordinary. If that is not the case, then once again, why the City is forcing its personal whims on its constituency, regardless of the economic impact it might have on the very businesses it is designed to protect? +1 -1 1
