After presenting this development to the membership for a vote, it appears that there is not a 2/3 majority in favor of it. There were several that approved of this development and there were others that were pretty opposed to the development. As a result, the SVBA will take a neutral position on this development. If you have a strong opinion either way I suggest you appear in person at the public hearing to express your opinion. The hearing examiner will hear this request this Thursday, Jan. 10th at 1pm in the Public Assembly Room of the City County Building on the second floor. Below is the list of commitments that the prospective owner has agreed to:
Landscaping shall be completed within six months of the grant of this variance and maintained at all times thereafter. Landscaping in the clear sight triangle will meet the requirements of the city ordinance at all times.
