We were to deliberate on a number of site specific land use applications, some of which were encumbered by land use rule RL-8, which restricts further development of commercial and industrial uses in rural areas. For those which weren’t encumbered by RL-8, we recommended approval.
I moved we not move forward on the remaining site specifics until final wording of RL-8 was approved by the Board of County Commissioners. The motion failed. Staff suggested we wait until a special Planning Commission meeting on October 13 to address these parcels. In subsequent correspondence, the RL-8 site specific parcel decisions will be delayed until early in 2010, hopefully after we have a final decision on the wording of RL-8.
We met with the Kingston downtown design citizens and were in unanimous agreement they had done a fine job and we expect to recommend approval of their plan to the Board of County Commissions.
