With all due respect to the developer Robert J. Holmes (Readers' Forum, Sept. 18), surely a man who has been in the development business for 50 years has seen more then a few zoning laws change. If not, Holmes should look closely at his hometown of Draper for a refresher course. This is why subdivisions, businesses, and shopping districts stand where farmland and agriculture once existed. Zoning laws change according to the needs and desires of he community. That is why the Salt Lake City Council should lift any restriction and allow Nordstrom to move to The Gateway.
