People who live off St. Mary's Avenue and the surrounding area made their voices heard, asking the City Council to not move forward with rezoning. Residents argue it would hurt their property value as well as create an unsafe situation with more traffic. The City Council voted 4-3 not to have a second reading, basically killing the proposal. Neighbor Terry Hull said he was thrilled with the decision but knows it may not be over.
