I applaud Coryell's dissenting voice

To the Editor:

Because I haven’t paid attention to any discussion about development schemes for Cleveland Heights’s Turkey Ridge, I was unaware that on March 3 CH City Council decided 6-1 to establish a Community Reinvestment Area (CRA) along Turkey Ridge. I read in the April issue of the Heights Observer City Council Member Jeff Coryell’s explanation for his lone dissenting voice.

Coryell’s April letter to the editor proves once more why we people of Cleveland Heights chose him as our new city council member. I strongly agree with the reasoning behind Coryell’s dissenting vote, and I hope ways can yet be found to involve the community at large in this issue before the city embarks on possibly ill-advised economic development plans.
