C. Duane O’Neal
commissioner, Greenwood Advisory Plan Commission
To the editor:
On March 19, the Daily Journal published a letter in which William and Eileen Hammond allege ill-treatment of city residents at the hands of the Greenwood Advisory Plan Commission.
Additionally, they imply that the plan commission, during a public meeting, approved the construction of a two-story apartment building. In reply, I counter that neither assertion is an accurate representation of the actions taken during the meeting. Contrary to the Hammonds’ assertion, the use of the property for an apartment building was never at issue because the property has been properly zoned for this use for years.
The issue under consideration during the meeting was the elimination of a lot line between two existing lots. The plan commission is bound to evaluate this request in terms of compliance with city ordinances and state law.
