I think it is pretty obvious Biafora is not really that concerned about safety. He wants to limit competition, and by extension so does the church since they are his partners in their strange endeavor. They will use whatever leverage they can to create their spin, even if they have to manufacture reasons. The key is to counter their spin with more effective spin of your own. You can not counter the arguments of someone in attack mode by just playing nice. You need to show that the benefits of this development are too good for the city to miss, and paint an accurate picture of Biafora simply trying to limit competition out of self interest with little regard for the negative effects on the municipality.

Don't get me wrong. I appreciate all the positive development taking place in the Morgantown area including that of Biafora, but it is clear that he is acting in his own interests here and that this project is very much in the best interests of the city. It is important to look at his tactics in this matter and counter with an effective strategy. If your argument is more convincing than his, especially since most of his developments are outside the city limits, it will be much easier to carry the day.

Click on 'agenda' for September to view. I'm actually more interested in what the Beauty College is doing that constitutes a development of significant impact...?

They don't have much space there to expand, so it is hard to imagine what they have in mind. That is a beautiful, historic building they currently occupy though.

The Beauty College is converting some of the unused rooms on the upper floors into apartments.

Good for them. It makes sense to utilize the unused space.

Is David Biafora OK with this? Can't resist.

I believe the main opposition would come from Guliani since it will be in more direct competition with him.
