I would leave the nature argument out otherwise we will have moms citing that as a reason to eat their young.

That has to be the stupidest post yet Sam. Ever heard of consent? Wow! Let us know how the car or the goat gives consent please! Further, I am still trying to figure out how this same sex marriage ruling threatens the marriage of those of you who are so adamantly against it? What is the deal? No one will make you marry someone of the same sex if you don't want to. I know my hetero marriage…

1. Humans are part of nature 2. Some humans are homosexual --------------------------------------- C. Some parts of nature are homosexual In my Catholic opinion, there is no natural marriage other than the one we believe in: man and woman in a procreative and unitive covenant. I don't think people who don't want kids are actually married in the eyes of God and the natural law. I don't…

Wow, what inbred, and ignorant rants. Sorry to say it but most who say gay marriage is "disgusting" just need to step out of the closet. Marrying a goat? We're talking gay people, not Mid-west farmers. Move to the swamps and mountains where the other inbred rednecks dwell. You can sleep with your wife, goat, sister, and daughter and no one will know. Let the real world progress to something great.…

Where states make classifications (restrictions based on type/group) they can discriminate as long as the state has a compelling state interest to do so and that the classification is necessary to achieve that interest. There are compelling state interests to limiting marriage to two people (state handling of inheritance, state's interest in not letting women being relegated to second class citizens,…

Plan Commission approves all requests at Wednesday night's meeting

2 years, 7 months ago by Paige Traeder

Many items were on the agenda at Wednesday night's meeting, starting with a request for a special permit for the sale of alcoholic beverages on property at 2802 Broadway

Many items were on the agenda at Wednesday night's Plan Commission meeting, starting with a request from Dennis Boudreau for a special permit for the sale of alcoholic beverages on property at 2802 Broadway. The special permit would allow the sale of alcoholic beverages in the form of packaged liquor, wine and beer in one of the lease units in a five-unit retail center located on the south side of Broadway. The westernmost unit in the center, about 2,000 square feet, would be leased for a proposed high-end wine shop.

Staff did support the proposed special permit, but one man who lives directly behind the proposed business, Bob Taylor, voiced some of his concerns to the Commission. He said many people cut through his property and that this new business would increase that traffic and it could be a potential "security threat." Taylor requested that Boudreau put up some kind of post or gate in the back of the building to prevent that from happening. Boudreau said he would do anything to satisfy his customers but said "its not really my issue." After some discussion on the matter, motion did carry and staff approved the request.

In other business, Neal Slattery, staff engineer, represented Americare Properties, Inc. to request a zoning change from C1A to C1B Limited Local Commercial of 2.83 acres located on the west side of North 48th Street between "Going Bonkers" on the north and "Interstate Battery" on the south. Motion was approved as the firm plans to develop the property with a senior living center and just needed re-zoning for extra land for the infrastructure.

Also, motion was approved for the review of site and building plans for First Farm Credit Services at 5317 State Street. Because the site is zoned Planned Commercial, it requires the Plan Commission and City Council review. The company's engineering firm has been working with city officials for months, and information has been provided concerning the location of the building, driveways, parking, sidewalks, and general character of the development.

All matters approved by the Plan Commission go to the City Council.
