I think it's only townhomes, though. I think. I believe all the other stuff that was planned (hotel, office, retail), was all taken out of the plan due to local opposition (traffic concerns I guess). At one point it was to include a grocery store. Guess not.

But maybe some of that is still in. Guess we'll see.
NIMBYs gonna NIMBY and prevent developments that actually provide people the ability not to drive for every errand.

ONLY IN PEACHTREE CITY ... would the closing of a beloved restaurant be front page news. Thai Spice at The Avenue PTC was forced to shut down last week after 15 years when mall management refused to renew their lease ( ). Channel 2 News even came down and did a LIVE REMOTE ( ) about all the angry customers “demanding answers” ( ).

Turns out the NEW tenant will be ... HIGHLAND BAKERY (who was willing to pay a lot more for the space than Thai Spice was paying). Now it all makes sense and PTC’s tennis and golf ladies are happy again and SUPER EXCITED!!!

Yes ... which is what made the whole angst-ridden situation so ridiculous.

Maybe they are simply trying to protect their neighborhood? I imagine that most of us would try to protect our neighborhood were a developer proposing to make large changes to it that we did not agree with. It's too bad that we use "NIMBY" in a manner to imply something derogatory.

You know who else was trying to "protect their neighborhoods"? Segregationist!

And Fidel Castro tried to protect the Cuban Revolution, too, but that is simply an illogical comparison just like the segregationist comparison. Why impute evil intent on those that disagree with others simply because they are invested in their neighborhood and don't want it to be significantly altered? I think when it comes down to something we hold near and dear, we are all NIMBYs. Nothing wrong with that.

Showing how that same language was used to keep people out of areas because of their skin color. Always have to pick your words carefully.
