[caption id="attachment_1196" align="alignleft" width="107"]Amy Barry Amy Barry[/caption] A petition has been filed to amend the master plan and rezone 8 parcels located about 1960 S 900 E. As I walked my neighborhood to deliver 200 flyers to alert neighbors about the meeting I had some good discussions.

One gentleman really struck me when he said he's lived there 30 years and seen a lot of changes and just doesn't think participating matters. Here I am schlepping around the neighborhood in the cold (and I had a nasty cold too) and I thought how disheartening. Once my head cleared from my illness I realized that I have often felt powerless and that my voice did not matter with the city. I have felt like my neighbor and I wonder what has kept spurring me on?

About 10 years ago the master plan was amended to rezone the business district to allow for the height and density we now see. Hardly anyone paid attention or participated. Maybe because they didn't know about it. Maybe because they didn't care. Maybe because they didn't believe anything would change.
