How about trashy places like the flea mkt on Charity across from the old Franks. Did they get a permit for that fancy fence to hide there junk before the contest? Wonder if they could pass a Fire Marshal's inspection? No, they living in that rathole. The business is next door. It is not a business behind the fence!<quoted text>Let me expain. That ordinance was passed by the City Council. When I was sworn in, I swore to obey the laws currently in place. We had no choice but to deny. They can apply for a variance, if they wish. By the way the vote was 5-0 to deny. It is all public knowledge on the internet. They could put their modular building on another street where they are allowed. In Lafayete, we own an acre of property across from the Acadiana Mall. Used car lots are prohibited, modular buildings are prohibited, metal roofs are prohibited, bars are prohibited, fun jump businesses, and the list goes on and on. Lafayette is doing like we are doing. Allowing certain structures in certain parts of the city, while not letting other structures build in parts of the city. Lafayette has zoning laws, which we don't have. Only a certain type of buisiness can be put at a certain location. They are a lot stricter than us, trust me. If you would see the restrictions at River Ranch, you would be shocked. All structures have to have roof caps and built with old brick or stucco, with some wood allowed for trim, for starters. St. Francis Woods in Abbeville, has some pretty tough subdivision restrictions, too, so it is not just Mid South Bank on 167 that can't do what they want.
Is this better than a modular building? It is an eyesore!
