Murphy Oil USA, Inc, represented by a perspective buyer of land acquired postKatrina to create a buffer, has applied for a zoning change in our neighborhood. Homeowners and residents have opposed this commercial development. Concerned Citizens received a communication of alleged harassment and intimidation tactics by this representative -- the perspective buyer -- and do not take such threats lightly. While these types of rude and egregious behavior were the unfortunate common interactions initiated by the refinery's subcontractors during remediation and demolitions for the crude oil spill, it is no more representative of Murphy Oil's corporate commitment now than it was then. It simply is not tolerated by either party and illustrates all the more why industry, transient workers, commercial traffic, development and the lot should be buffered from the families in our community by the empty green space which exists now.
