At what point should the City of Monroe require compensation for clerical and related time expenditure from the disgruntled, four-time losers that are once again dredging up the East Monroe rezone. With all the budget shortfalls facing the city, someone should find an appropriate nuisance payment schedule for annoying land speculators as they attempt to ramrod their flawed development through city planning. Certainly they reluctantly coughed up some dough for a slanted EIS but that’s a common scenario between desperate developers, willing engineers and enabling politicians (see Monroe Golf Course EIS; is that developer out of prison yet?). Planning officials have concluded four times that this area is unfit for development due to impacts on wetlands, shoreline, slope stability and traffic. I urge the city to shelve any decision on this matter until all parties and acknowledged experts are heard.
