Awaiting the arrival of her royal highness
The Department of City Planning has not certified rezoning applications for several Queens neighborhoods because City Planning Commissioner Amanda Jay Mortimer Burden has not personally toured those areas, according to QC's city planning source. The socialite apparently is such a micromanager that she does not trust her borough staffs to make the right decisions on rezonings. Meanwhile, the subjects of Queens continue to suffer from overdevelopment and are growing restless. They may soon show up at the castle gates, though. There is lively chatter amongst the unwashed masses of Dutch Kills, Maspeth, Middle Village and Auburndale of a major protest in the near future. Amanda, get off your throne and out to the royal borough of Queens.
