Cheney council abdicated its moral obligation

This rezoning opens the door for owner Todd Tarbert, an out-of-town landlord who has done little to maintain or improve the park in the nearly 20 years he has owned the property, to move forward with redevelopment that would displace almost 60 households, including low-income, elderly and disabled folks and multi-generational families.
