..To say the least, given that developers have been to build on the corner of Friendly Avenue and Hobbs Road for years now and the rezoning request finally comes before the Greensboro City Council during Tuesday night’s meeting.

Leading up to the rezoning showdown,the Hobbs Landing neighborhood has come out in support of the proposed mixed-use development— while the larger Friendly Coalition took to the streets to voice its opposition.

Tough call for the City Council—-no matter how they vote, someone’s gonna feel like they got screwed. Hey, that’s politics— which is why I’ve always had trouble understanding the uproar over Sen. Trudy Wade’s SB 36. Someone always draws the ace of spades no matter how you shuffle the deck.
