On a four to one vote, the county planning commission sent the Board of County Commissioners a proposed revision to section 9 of the Land Use Code, Visual Impact Regulation. On Thursday, Mar. 21, the 4-H Center resembled families at a wedding, with supporters of the proposal on one side of the aisle and opponents on the other. Several amendments to the commission’s Jan. 15 proposed revision passed during deliberations.
After finishing the public comment portion, begun on Feb. 26, it was finally the planning commission’s turn to answer questions posed during two sessions of the public hearing. Only public speakers that signed up at the first session could address the commission on Thursday, and seven did so.
