A Little Urbanity: More on Protest Petitions, Reversal of Fortune Thanks David Wharton

A Little Urbanity: More on Protest Petitions

David Wharton who runs a blog called A Little Urbanity CLICKHERE , has a great post on restoring Protest Petitions to the citizens of Greensboro.You can click on the title above to go to his site.

Here is a quote from David Wharton"Over the past year I've changed my mind on this issue. I used to think -- as the real estate industry does -- that the petition puts too much power in the hands of too few people."Then he talks about how fair it isn't and gives some great examples to ponder about a special interest group called TREBIC. It is great to hear David Wharton change his mind on the issue to bring back Protest Petitions to Greensboro.

Over a edcone's site CLICKHERE here is what ed had to say about David Wharton and his post.

"Whether you agree with him or not on this issue (I do), Wharton's opinion is one to take seriously, and I hope the media and the City Council will give his words due consideration."

With the help of the Greensboro Neighborhood Congress,League of Women Voters of the Triad, Coalition of Concerned Citizens of the Triad, residents from all over the Triad including High Point and support from those in the blogosphere who got this ball rolling on this issue close to over a year ago. It is time to speak up and be heard. January 21, 2009 is the start of this process but everyone needs to remember that this is a State of North Carolina issue and need to let your state representatives know how you feel that this isn't fair to the citizens of Greensboro that they don't have the right to a Protest Petition in the zoning process to have against unwanted development in established neighborhoods.
