After surveying 288 homeowners near Flathead High School about their neighborhood’s strengths and challenges, the city of Kalispell will hold a meeting later this month on the responses.

Sixty-two people returned mail surveys and 26 said they would be interested in starting a group to try to work through some of the neighborhood’s issues.

            "No majority, no committee's." That isn't how Smart Growth "Neighborhood Plans" work. These always end up being "rule by minority", but don't worry, there is never a lack of people in every neighborhood that will be happy to stick their nose over their neighbors fence to keep your local planning department informed on what you are up to. If you have never been involved in these things before, one word of advice: At these upcoming meetings, just remember that anytime a Smart Growth planner such as Tom Jentz say's anything, it is wise to, "trust but verify". Put another way: If a professional Smart Growth planners lips are moving...............

            288 surveys sent out, 62 returned, and only 26 interested in being on a committee. Sounds like it isn't that big a deal. The simple solution is obvious, no majority, no committees.

            I was told after complaining about living next to the airport that I knew I was buying a house next to the airport so I should suck it up and deal with it. If you don't want to deal with the kids parking around your house, don't buy or rent near the high school.

            High school students should not have to pay to park. Don't we want to make it easier for kids to get through high school?

            I don't live there now but once did and the climate has changed somewhat. Vehicles and no closed campus for a couple of things. The taxpayers have had to fork up for land to make parking for the students for one and the parking is horrendous for the neighboring property owners/renters. I have a suggestion: make the students buy parking passes and allow the neighbors to charge for the use of their parking space infront of or behind their homes. this will require a parking police to supervise and the revenues will satisfy the public. Infractions will result in vehicles towed at the charge to the student. Heck they may even car pool who knows.

            In Communist countries they call these "Neighborhood Defense Committee's." Their job was to allow the government the means to keep an eye on the citizens and what they were doing right down to the "Neighborhood" level. This has been something the city's Smart Growth Planning Director Tom Jentz has been talking about wanting for years in the City of Kalispell. This made up school issue sounds like it is "made to order." Don't forget to sign up for the position of "Block Kapitan". If old Tom gets his way there will be openings for a lot of them in Kalispell.
