That's 'cause Joe Bowser is a rebel who's beholden to no one, don'tcha know.
UPDATE: Kevin breaks the news that Fairway has withdrawn their request for a vote on the amendment tonight. I don't know what that means, but John Schelp seems to think it's good news.
If i recall, their defeat in City Council was accompanied by some discussion that they had to wait at least a year before bringing it up again. I assume that by not having a vote tonight at the Commission, they can come back to that body at a time of their own choosing?
UPDATE: Over at the N&O Jim Wise writes "(T)o raise the issue again would require a formal request, paying fees and going through the review process from square one."
Obviously, the money's not going to be an issue for an outfit like Fairway, but the whole formal request and review process is going to take a lot of time. They've invested two years in this so far, so it's hard to see this as anything other than throwing in the towel.
Chalk up one for the good guys.
