From: Mary A. Cichanowski
I want to thank the Winona Chamber of Commerce for publicly supporting the proposed amendments to the zoning ordinance. It is apparent that the Chamber appreciates and realizes the financial support the rural property owners bring to the economic health of the city.
Rural residents are tourists when we visit Winona. We choose to shop in your stores, eat in your restaurants. We work for your businesses.
If you want to support your neighbors, as we support your local economy, call your county commissioners and tell them to vote yes on the proposed zoning amendments. Elect future commissioners who realize the impact their decisions may have on you. If this unwanted interference with our property rights continues, it is reasonable to assume there could be a shift to the many other sources for purchases of goods and services available to this population.
