Apparently the city’s planning and zoning commissions, along with Mayor Riley, plan to attempt a governmental solution to the Beach Company’s Sergeant Jasper site. Certainly the current zoning may be totally objectionable. However, the use of governmental authority may present the landowner with a claim for selective discrimination and/or spot zoning, as the city attempts to correct a longstanding zoning problem.
