I agree with 420... hire a fucking lawyer. We spend so much time fighting them, it may be time to use that distasteful offense. Find one who specializes in zoning, one who is known amongst the council.

And spend a ton of money with no guarantee of the outcome? GS is the self-sufficient type imho. He's going to use his own gun

How well do you know the owners of the lot/s across the street. Everyone, especially elected officials, love it when people try to work together ahead of a public confrontation. You need to talk to the owners and explain your concern/s and see what they have to say. Try to do it in person, face-to-face if possible, but get key issues in some written form if possible. I think carefully crafted email communications may be most useful, following a walk-around-the-lot/s personal conversation w/ the owners. They certainly must know that you are going to be concerned about their plans, and if they had any character at all they would have contacted you for input by now--so I'm not sure if they'll want to meet w/ you. The more you can avoid the appearance of confrontation and hostility the more likely you are to get some positive modification of their plans. Since you obviously must have known that someone was going to do something across the street eventually, I think the onus may be on you to look like the "good guy" in and future negotiations w/ the owners and/or the city. Assume you are going to take it in the ear, and consider any positive change/s in the plan and the city's approach to the "problem" a victory. In short, be the statesman and hope someone responds to your well-meaning gestures.

Don't believe everything you think
