Council in Reverse
Two weeks ago, the Greensboro city council responded to a groundswell of opposition to a revised downtown noise ordinance with a limit louder than Portland.
This week, we discovered the citizens of Durham contributed nothing to build their highly successful Performing Arts Center, and only one person turned out for the D3 meeting, which includes downtown, to discuss our PAC.
Also this week, city council decided not to fund any of the proposed sites for business development that would have cost $9.3M because they didn’t meet the funding guidelines.
Quoting noise ordinance instigator and failed property developer, Roy Carroll:
“With this council, I don’t think I’m going back and ask for any type of participation,” he said.
So much for allegations of collusion and corporate cronyism.
