Weyerhaeuser mansion neighbor loses most arguments in bid for event venue reconsideration

If you've been following the ongoing fight over the use of the Weyerhaeuser Mansion, here's the latest chapter:

Tacoma Hearing Examiner Phyllis MacLeod has more or less reaffirmed her previous ruling, with only minor modification. This, despite the protests of neighbors to the historic property. Those neighbors had made several requests for reconsideration of the earlier ruling by the Hearing Examiner.

The latest decision does modify the ruling to require that the off-duty police officers required to act as security for the event space would also be required to walk the property boundary.
