Jay Woodward, 12 11th Avenue SW stated he is not against selling the property but is against building a four-plex on the property. He stated it is too small, there will be no yard and where will all their cars park. He was speaking on behalf of several other adjacent property owners. They were concerned the new renters would not be good renters, as in the past because there is too much government funded housing in this community. Their neighborhood was now peaceful since the police no longer need to respond to those issues.

Stickel said a new building would look good in that area. B. Weber too agreed that the parking may be an issue.

Deb Howard, OCAD Director, spoke on behalf of the developer and he wants to build multiple developments in town. He is very conscientious of what he would want if he lived in that neighborhood.
