Midtowner, 7/17/2008 - 12:39pm "G. Webster should take a walk through the area in question. In fact, Perry's apartments that currently occupy the space where the Bomasada project is planned are much more like the "Spanish language transmission shop" he references than the proposed improvements. Unfortunately, like the Lassiter and Shoemaker properties at 21st and Harvard, Perry's places will simply sit and continue to be a blight on the neighborhood as long as new development is discouraged by complex and contradictory regulations. There are people at INCOG whose full time job appears to be to continue to expand and complicate the zoning code. If they support this project, you can be sure it is not short on regulation. Anyone who has tried to improve or develop something in Tulsa with their own money can attest to this. Sadly, the regulation itself is what has made it necessary to have considerable wealth to be able to fight through the system to do almost anything, so almost by default, a developer is an evil fat cat that can always draw a handful of cranky protesters. This is part of why there is so much derelict property around Tulsa, including downtown."
