In reference to the Feb. 4 "Zoning change worries Plain Twp. neighbors" article:
I don't understand how people can complain about Kuntry Haven Construction property not being zoned commercial and then fight against him when he is trying to get his property rezoned to commercial. People want Mr. Shank to stay in business but just want him to park his equipment somewhere else. If you want Mr. Shank to stay in business stop fighting against him with getting the property rezoned.
If the concerned citizens of Plain Township want Mr. Shank to keep in business would you allow him to build a big barn and keep his equipment in it? If you make a him move his equipment you are going to make him pay rent on a building or property and you're going to make him raise his prices. I know it's been a while since I have drove past the property but from what I can recall I don't remember his property being overwhelmed with equipment.
You don't want to rezone him and from what I am recalling I do believe his property is darn close to being across from the Wood County Landfill. People of Plain Township state that they don't want other businesses to attempt to build or get property rezoned because they don't want the added buildup of their farmland. So Plain Township zoning committee you have a big decision to make, I would hope that you make the right decision and side with Mr. Shank.
