thinking waaaaaaaaaay outside the box

considering the severe parking problems in that area

the church could charge for parking in their lot when the spaces are not needed for their gatherings

it appears that the neighbors have grown comfortable with the decline in the church membership because less traffic and more parking on the street for them

they should have known that eventually the church would be put into a situation where it could not cover its operating costs

now that the parking and traffic may return to the state when the church had full membership the neighbors have resistance about any project that will increase the traffic and parking to previous conditions

they may reject the current project but they should be aware that another project may come forward that could be worse in regards to parking and traffic concerns

it appears that all zoning members have to vote in favor of the project to allow it to move forward

the developer could develop the old lehigh train station at the north end of sherrill street for a smaller version of the project they are proposing for the church

a few adjacent properties near the train station could be acquired for parking or other options

It's refreshing to see the Geneva Zoning Board is listening to reason on this issue to find compromise. It's disheartening that the group of people against the project have hired outside counsel to represent them in moving against the church. My hope is that compromise is found, the tax base expanded, and the building maintained as it is the only flying buttress in the city!

Does anyone know what the latest is on Trinity church. There was quite a tempest for a short while. The two sides were noisily at play with each other and then, now, quiet! Anyone know what's going on? Are the two sides busy plotting and strategizing for a fall offensive perhaps? Or what?

I believe the neighborhood group has filed a lawsuit over the actions of the planning board.
