City Planning Commission members have been criticized Dy an architect f o r t h e i r reluctance to make a decisión on the site plan for an apartment complex on N. Main near Huron View Blvd. After commissioners had decided to again defer action on the plan, architect Nathan Johnson, asked, "How long are you going to go on with this? Would you teil us what you want us to do, rather than just have us sit on the land and pay taxes?" The commission had deferred action and asked that Johnson meet with residents of the area who had raised certain objections to the plan i which calis for construction of 250 units. "You just keep sending us back to the people. I We've worked with them, I they've been helpful, but we I c a n ' t follow all of t h e i r I suggestions," Johnson said. I "I don't think you're treating us fairly." Concerns deal mainly with the grading and filling work which will be necessary on the hilly site. "Don't you have a Building and Safety Departm e n t that t a k e s care of grades?" Johnson asked. Commissioners v o t e d to meet at the site Dec. 4 with residents of the area and Johnson, and walk the area to have a visual look at what is planned.
