It's time to get mad about Lower Greenville's future

After last Thursday's defeat of the CityVille rezoning proposal, things got kinda hot on the email and phone lines around Lower Greenville

It wasn't the vote itself - because to be honest, it was not unexpected - but it was the virulent lying and misstatements made by the residents on the west side of Lower Greenville.

It's time to get mad about Lower Greenville's future, and that means you!

Live from City Hall! The CityVille zoning hearing

Read the follow-up editorial to this story: It's time to get mad about Lower Greenville's future - click here

This is a first... BD was blogging from the City Plan Commission hearing on CityVille Thursday afternoon.

The last time BD was at City Hall, Mad Maxine made sure the guards had his picture in their pockets and the wifi signal was not open to the public.

It was a spur of the moment decision, but it captures the essence of what happened at this hearing, and the personalities involved. And if you are to believe the comments coming back to BD, many of these personalities were none too happy to find their lies posted on the Internet before they were hiding in their back bedrooms again. There were nearly 1,000 hits to this page in less than 24 hours.

What follows is an edited version of the original real-time blog - in proper time sequence, corrected spelling (we hope), complete names, and more backgroud information. BD's personal comments are inserted in italics between the paragraphs.

John is taking over the former Nick's Cafe location on the southern end of Lower Greenville, across the street from Firestone MasterCare. Nick's owner is retiring due to personal reasons. So John - a family friend - is bringing his world-famous service back to the Nick's location while his wife and daughter manage the Forest Lane restaurant.
