Are ordinances applied to all?

When Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church (located on Deer Park Road) added on an education wing, the church was forced to curb and gutter along the front of the property.

Since then, Crossroads Church, also located on Deer Park Road (opposite side) has built a new church. To date, there is no curb and guttering on the street side.

There is also no curb and guttering on the street side of Rann Elementary School. However, there is curb and guttering in front of Pettit Private School.

As a member of the Catholic Communities in Wise County, I would like someone to explain in this forum why this has been allowed to happen. In my opinion, the ordinance should be equally applied to all.

  1. I’m pretty sure there’s a formula that is based on the number of people in and out of the facility that would determine this. The school could be exempt because, well, it’s a public school. The church possibly because it’s a much smaller church with fewer cars in and out.
