The recent article, Proposal on track to rezone Speedway property, stated that "During the meeting there was some opposition from residents." The reason there was only "some" opposition is that very few people got notices.

The result is always time lost in searching for the property's address. Even more important is critical delays for emergency services like ambulance and police.
