An upcoming zoning issue on North ‘A’ Street in Lake Worth: Remember the advice from Matt Morgan?

There was a situation with a sidewalk in Wellington and a lot of people decided letting a Post reporter know about this was the way to go. Wrong. Here is how reporter Matt Morgan responded:

     “Make your own decision whether you want it, and tell your elected officials. They represent you and want to hear what you have to say. Think this will be a great way to build on a vacant property, raising the home values of the surrounding neighborhoods? Tell them that.”

[and. . .]

     “If you show up a month after the project is approved and tell the council that you don’t want it, you waited too long.”

Below is an item in this week’s Lake Worth Herald online edition:
