As I've previously posted, a Land Use Clinic client, Newtown Florist Club and the Newtown neighborhood, has been the subject of a three article series in the Gainesville Times. The final article contains reaction from public officials to our proposals to amend the city's noise and air pollution ordinances. We're trying to get the city to enforce some industrial performance standards to control the serious noise and dust caused by the neighboring scrapyard and other industry. As you can from the article, it's a long and difficult struggle. I encourage you to view the slide show, which shows the level of aesthetic nuisance the neighborhood endures.
