Magic House

Article about it wanting to expand and getting pushack.

I find it interesting people are complaining about it tearing down houses hurting the school district, when usually you hear those complaints when there are proposals to put IN housing not take it away. I guess it just shows people are going to complain about everything.

I really like Kirkwood, but there is a big NIMBY crowd there. The residents who fought Vianney over the baseball field were being ridiculous.

I have no dog in that fight...but the residents whose fields backed up to the field with new lighting and sound were not being ridiculous. They were perhaps a little unwilling to compromise, but Vianney was a LOT unwilling to compromise on things like playing music during practice. And ultimately it was the City of Kirkwood's blunder to approve-but-not-really the lighting and sound, which caused Vianney to proceed with their plans.

Great to see the Magic House continuing to grow, but perhaps it's time they look for a new, larger location where they could start from scratch?
