North Hill residents protest concerns to Governor Scott
People who live in North Hill gathered outside the Fish House restaurant today.
They're fighting a plan to install probation office in the old Coca-Cola plant on Palafox street.
North Hill residents say the property is not zoned correctly.
This morning, they were trying to get their message to Governor Rick Scott.
He was in town for a private event.
Sherry Schneider: "I don't even know if he knows but he's in charge. What he does, he could stop it if he wanted to."
Chris Rutland: "I got parolees and people on probation, not everyone is gonna continue to be a criminal but some of them are and that's just bringing more of a threat to my kids and my safety."
Governor Scott did not meet with the protestors or with our reporter.
So no word on if he'll consider the neighborhood's concerns.
