Owner of the home, Tony Turner, and Real Estate Agent Suzie Gautreaux, both agreed that the neighborhood is changing. The future school board offices will be located approximately 300 feet across the street of the Turner residence and will quickly change the neighborhood appearance to a business-like area.
The property on Church Street has been on the market for more than a year with no potential of any interested buyers. Gautreaux mentioned the market determines what needs to take place at this location, therefore Maciasz is asking the city council to approve a zoning waiver for this location.
The request was voted down 4-0 by the council. Some council members did agree that this area is heavily traveled and raising children here could be potentially dangerous.
