Stipulations that the
P&Z committee has been attempting to negotiate with the Patels to limit
building heights and setbacks, as well as usage – are not firmly
established at this time, and could be nullified by the County P&Z
Commission, Board of Supervisors, and/or found to be unenforceable by County
The VOCA CC&Rs
pertaining to the property are not a matter of County purview. Should the
County grant the commercial rezone and the Patel’s commence building
structure(s) that do not conform to the CC&Rs, the County will not wait for
a legal decision before issuing building permits.
At the conclusion of the
forum, the P&Z Committee met for a vote, which was open to the
public. Weary from the marathon forum, very few of us hung in for that
session. At the meeting, committee member
David Gill moved that the committee vote to oppose the Rezoning
request. He presented a prepared 10-point rationale for
denial. No committee member would second the motion.
Stuck at an impasse, it was decided to schedule a meeting for Monday (Memorial Day) at 9am at the VOC
Church of the Nazarene to make a decision.
It’s time to CALL OUT the P&Z committee and board who are
apparently tone deaf to the best interests and the voice of the community
Attend the P&Z meeting on Monday,
May 27. KEEP THE PRESSURE ON to have our community’s
interest and voice incorporated into their recommendation. 9am,
VOC Church of the Nazarene, 50 Rojo Drive.
