Little 'vision' shown in zoning controversy

Dear editor,

What is wrong with our "vision" in Rockdale? Preventing a nice upscale antique shop from opening in the downtown area of Rockdale, is sending the wrong message to visitors and newcomers.

If you drive around the streets surrounding the house in question, you will find many violations of codes and general maintenance that affects our city. When we have an opportunity for an "improvement," why would we deny access?

I do not live inside the city limits of Rockdale, but Rockdale has been home to me for 35 years and this recent controversy is far beyond my understanding.

In talking with my family members and many other residents of Rockdale, I have found that the feeling is mutual. I say, "Lets approve the re-zoning and get Rockdale moving in the RIGHT DIRECTION!
