Mary Hussmann (visible), a member of Grass Roots Organizing, a citizens' rights group, hugs Cynthia Martie, a Regency Mobile Home Park resident after a Planning and Zoning Commission meeting held at the Columbia City Council chambers on Thursday night. The commission voted in favor of denying a recommendation for approving a rezoning plan for the Regency property. The property would be redeveloped into student housing and would force the eviction of hundreds of the park residents.
