“In the past, it seems like most businesses that are proposed have been put through without a lot of consideration by the DRC,” Matt Smith recalls. “This time, it was different.”

Smith added community wide opposition to the Valvoline proposal inspired greater numbers of residents to get involved.

“There was a number of people there who were regulars, but we were really encouraged to see 20-30 people show up who were new to all this,” Smith noted, “and that’s going give momentum to the community voice as we move forward.”

The organizer added not everyone at the meeting was happy with the Development Review Commission’s decision.
