A months-old zoning dispute between residents of Logansport Street and members of the City Council has spilled over into the Northeast Ward race between incumbent Garth Hinze and challenger Kathleen Belanger.

Belanger is a resident of Logansport Street where neighbors for the past seven months have opposed a zoning change that would allow a multifamily high-density development — known as R-4 zoning — at the end of the street near Pecan Park.

Zoning is important in every city and especially those that have potentials for growth. No city should want to share the dubious reputation with Houston, Texas as the largest city in the country with no zoning and hazardous businesses are built-in or near or major housing and residential areas.
