One of my readers has brought my attention to the linked bill. I've read it over a couple times and it seems to be a way for developers to streamline zoning changes in community centers across Columbia (but also in the surrounding county) at the expense of community input. Let me know what you think. I'm having a hard time getting my head around what exactly is changing with the new bill, but can tell that at the very least it is putting developers (or "property owners") in an advantaged position against someone that wants to sell cupcakes out of their kitchen and wants to petition for a new zoning measure.
