Can anyone explain the reason it took two years for my neighbor to get questions answered and permits (which were all required by the city) before they could put in a parking strip for their business (mandatory request by the city)? What does Paul Schell have that so many of our other citizens don’t in obtaining architectural design approval, permits, etc. so quickly? Money?
