  • One of the questions to be asked at this workshop is there a need for a design review board. Its obvious the board isn’t necessary since the 4 councilman gave Wendt a yes vote on his appeal . Wendt broke City policy by never applying for a building design approval before “ordering” his building. Wendt has now opened up Pandora’s box for all developers and builders to tell the City to “fly a kite-I don’t have to have any design board approval for my building”. The 4 council people made the biggest mistake made in the last 50 years and they’ll be remembered for the damage caused. The 90’s was Wendtville and unfortunately 20+ years later Wendtville has returned in full force.
    The Planning Commission needs to bring this very question up -what are the negative affects of bypassing design review approval?
