Jul 22, 2010 12:20:00 AM - thestate.com
Columbia City Council members gave initial approval to the controversial
annexation of a Verizon call center near the Woodcreek Farms community, but
have pledged to wait two months before making the annexation final.
In the meantime, Mayor Steve Benjamin has asked District 4 Councilwoman
Leona Plaugh to lead a task force of interested parties to come up with
ideas on how the city might alleviate the neighborhood¹s concerns.
Some Woodcreek Farms residents are concerned there is not enough of a buffer
between the call center and the neighborhood, a fact that could affect the
neighborhood¹s properety values.
