Shame that more information was researched on the effects Palmer Court has had on businesses in the surrounding area. The Rock Shop just two doors south of there has had a huge increase in theft within their store and even had a resident from Palmer Court urinate inside their store on the floor. A family run business that is considering moving to strictly online sales. I'm sure that the Chevron gas station would have shared plenty of their stories as well. These are just two of many businesses in the area that have been negatively affected by Palmer Court. The heart of the community is in the right place trying to help out the most destitute of our community, but it also takes a lot more work for all these public services by having so many congregated in one place. Thank you for a very insightful article into how the place is being run.
I wish the city of Sandy would step up to the plate and make it right with this small business owner! He shouldn't have had to go through this legal battle with the city to prove that the property was his all along! Shameful to do this to Mr. Maupin and his family, I hope that this man doesn't go through much more unnecessary hardship than he already has had to go through!
