The Nashville Scene's Bruce Barry refers us to the real estate broker, Barbara Browning (Browning, Inc, Broker), who opposed the height restriction bill passed at last night's council meeting. She told the Tennessean that only people who live in "little cottages" oppose giving rich people a free hand to build 60-70 foot home towers that blot out other people's sun in smaller scale neighborhoods.
Bruce bequeaths a gem that has to be our quote of the week:
Browning, one assumes, opposes all zoning laws. Browning, one hopes, will find the owner of the lot next door to hers seeking a variance to build a convenience store, or maybe an adult bookstore. Browning, one eagerly anticipates, will appear cheerfully on that owner’s behalf down at the Metro Planning Commission.Unless Barbara Browning (http://www.barbarabrowning.com/) was misquoted in the Tennessean, she seems to be one of the most unneighborly Realtors I have seen around town relative to the scores of us cottage-bound peons at her feet.
