Kevin Buckley is to be congratulated on his recent posting chosen as the Best of the Blogs for the week. He is a blogger on Whitefish BayNOW and wrote about a proposal for development on Silver Spring, former Talbots/Famous Foot location.
He is to be commended for this clear and thoughtful explanation of this situation as well as for his opinions, especially as I agree with him.
This site has too much community value to be given over to the first one coming along. A little patience will produce a more appropriate development. Perhaps the Village can come up with suggestions.
I found it interesting that the village manager e-mailed Kevin and included the letter from the would-be developer, obviously so that Kevin could inform the community. This kind of early information distribution and easy relationship between Village Hall and bloggers in Shorewood is not quite the same.
