ORD 2019-012: SUP for 602 Libbie Avenue to be used as an office. Seems to be for a law office.

I wonder if anyone will come to oppose this in person. There are a few letters of opposition with standard concerns: property values decreasing, parking, traffic.
#RVACouncil 🧜‍♀️
One letter of opposition is from the Westview Civic Association and another has a petition attached with 48 signatures of nearby residents. I assume the concerns were resolved since it was recommended to council with approval from the committee? Or are hella people showing up?
