Anyone see it last night? On one of the late night shows they had about ten minutes of people with their pets doing funny animal tricks. How about one guy was from somewhere near Albany. His pet was this chimp. The chimp could sit in front of a computer and it looked like he was typing. But what made it better was the chimp could peel a banana with his feet while typing. Wow! The man said he owns a car lot and he puts the chimp on display to amuse humans. He said the animal looks so funny in clothes and the animal acts likes it can sell cars. The only problem is the smell. The chimp stinks and has to be removed from public display so customers will stay........
Monkey sounds qualified to be a UPD officer or CO.

It's called a variance and it happens all the time.

why would you say it's devastating? nobody gives a crap that the corporate man didn't get it's way. they'll be building in utica somehow someway somewhere (and again, who cares?).
Maybe, then again maybe not. When a private business realizes that they're up against a neighborhood, a city, that gets up in arms over change and would end up wasting time and energy over something as simple as putting in a gas station at their preferred location why bother trying again?

This happened to Stewarts a good 15 years ago. I reckon it'll be at least that long again if it happens at all. Uticans are the problem in this city. They like shooting themselves in the foot. You'd think in CNY they'd know how to hold a gun...

Stewarts wanted the existing commercial lot AND 4 additional residential lots to be rezoned. The fools on the planning board and in the mayors office said no problem we'll get it done no matter how illegal it is...the common council did their job and voted it down.
Wrong. They wanted 3 residential zoned lots. However only one has a house on it. The other two have been used commercially for decades, and currently they look dumpy. Apparently east Uticans like that dumpy look.

So true. You had a private business that actually was going to create something (although it truly is just a convenience store) and utica thought it was in the drivers seat. Now they're stuck with a couple of eyesores that could have been improved. Kudos to you.
