The change in the building code on Washington Avenue did not surprise me one bit. If anyone comes along with enough money, you can get almost any code changed. I don't know why we have codes.
The head honchos in our city have just about totally destroyed "Beautiful Wheeling." They don't care what the people want, but just what they want. The Highlands and the St. Clairsville Mall are getting bigger and better while Wheeling dies.
