Part of the process of directing the physical growth and future development of a community is to engage in public dialogue. The sponsors of the petition to place restrictions on the density of jewelry stores are engaged in an important part of that dialogue. I commend them for their concern for the community in which they reside. I commend them for taking an active role in using our democratic institutions to achieve their end. And most importantly, I commend them for the fact that, in the face of mounting personal criticism, they have found a vehicle through the petition process to give all residents in this community a chance to influence the direction of our town.
