I need some help understanding this.

From what I understand, the cryptic agenda items on here related to historic zoning means that any building or lot that was ever used for anything can be reverted to that former use... is that right? This was specifically put onto the agenda for the building on the corner of Thompson and Hopewell. Since the measure was approved, does this mean that they can reopen that store as anything that it has ever been?

There is an ancient gas station on Cogburn... can that now be reopened as a gas station?

There are bunches of old country stores all over the place. Does this open the floodgates for folks to do whatever they want?

Are there rules? Most structures that are deemed "historic" have very strict restrictions put in place. For instance, my grandparents lived in a house that was listed as historic. They couldn't change the paint color, make any architectural additions, etc without approval from a board (which never approved any change at all). Will that be the case here?

why dont you go to one of the hpc meetings and ask them since travis seems to have all the answers

our city council is literally the best money can buy

I agree. It stinks to high heaven, but it won't matter after tonight. Tomorrow that will be a commercial lot.

Something "historic" means 50 years old. How many structures in Milton will be 50 years old tomorrow to 20 years from now? So essentially as time fly's so anyone can eventually turn any property into anything given enough time, anywhere in Milton. This is the stupidist thing I've ever seen. REally? All just to appease Chatham, half of Council's biggest supporter and campaign contributor? How about the two new guys, how much money did Chatham contribute to their campaigns? Anyone know? Karen Thurman is practically married to David Chatham so she should never be permitted to vote on anything associated with him. Really people!! Oh it won't become C-1 however Chatham will do as he pleases using this bullshit Historical Ordinance. Stupid stupid stupid city council. someone should scare the crap out of them with a lawsuit, it seems thats all it takes to get them to do or not do something. Just look at the gas station debacle on Hwy9 and Francis they all unanimously shot down, then once the law suit was threatened, about face! Wow. We got some weeners in this town!

You mean a Preserve Milton lawsuit? Who is this new Anonymous group? Sounds familiar.

Anonymous said...

It's a former council woman.

Anyone know the answers to the questions in the first post?

The guy applying for the gas station filed the lawsuit, duh, you people on this blog are clueless. And Tart was correct at the debate as Lance Large was waist deep in that mess.

So he fits right in as a new council person. This city likes to elect corruption.

The less Knowledgeable people are on the issues the easier it is to misinform them and get their vote. Aka Crooked Creek is Milton's ACORN.

The answers are yes, yes, yes,yes yes. Anything is possible w this historic ordinance. Who crafted it? The two knuckleheads on the historic society? There's your sign.

- L TCG

Btw the union did the same thing. it sells alcohol within feet of a school bus stop, which is against city ordinance. Council let that fly before any historical ordinance was ever crafted. they knew a bus stop would be at Haystack. A church was already in so many yards of it, and the corner opposing was also owned by a church. Didn't matter then, ain't gonna matter now.
All because it was at one time a site of a sandwich/burger stand. That is spot zoning smack in the middle of Milton.

Hey but the foods pretty good! No offense to the Union.

So if that restaurant fails, can it be sold to any food chain take over?

And who might be those knuckleheads, you sound so sour about them?

All elected officials are on the take in this town. Come to think about it, some of the unelected are as well. We need honorable and informed people to fill these positions.

and just who are you referring to?

Do you know what an elected official is, or is it you don't know their names?

They are all at city hall.
