Flaherty Collins rubber stamp for the Coyle site to be hastened by the Board of Zoning Appeals this Tuesday night.

An aside: Naturally, Board of Zoning Appeals minutes cannot be found on the city's web site, although minutes from some boards can ... if you look on the city clerk's page.

Anyway, the next step in the city's trickle-down, ripple-effect, luxury-R-us corporate welfare gift to Flaherty Collins takes place on Tuesday night. I may go to see if anyone at all asks a good question.

TO: New Albany Board of Zoning Appeals

FROM: Scott Wood, Director

SUBJECT: Regular Meeting, September 1st, 2015

Following are ten links offering background on this issue.

ON THE AVENUES: Money is the ultimate bully.

Gonder on Coyle sitecapades: "We need new rules, special rules, to guide the use of public/private partnerships."

Coyle site luxury giveaway: "The people that they want to attract can't afford to live there."

Coyle sitecapades: In New Albany, Democrats WILL be Republicans ... and Jeff Gahan WILL stay on the down low.

Perhaps the minutes are in the same file as the Mayor's email address. You know, the round file.

If you want company Tuesday, let me know.
