This morning’s Tennessean story
about Metro Council’s approval of a new height restriction for residential construction quotes real estate broker Barbara Browning, who lives in the Love Circle neighborhood where country singer John Rich plans to build his monument to excess:
"It's the people who are down below who live in little cottages that seem to have a problem with it…I really don't want anybody telling me what I can and cannot build on my lot."
Browning, one assumes, opposes all zoning laws. Browning, one hopes, will find the owner of the lot next door to hers seeking a variance to build a convenience store, or maybe an adult bookstore. Browning, one eagerly anticipates, will appear cheerfully on that owner’s behalf down at the Metro Planning Commission.
