Reminder: Land use plan amendment needs your support on August 10th!

[Updated to add links to download the text amendment documents.]

This Wednesday, August 10th is the North Fork Land Use Advisory Committee’s presentation of our revised text amendment to the planning board! Last June, the planning board had issues and our proposal was tabled. Since then a sub-committee has been revising the text amendment in conjunction with the county planning office and a work session with the planning board. This product has been pared down based on recommendations and, although we are confident, we need your support. This support consists of emailing (best option) or writing to the planning office (time sensitive), or showing up at the meeting in person or via zoom. Please encourage your friends and neighbors. Below, I have listed the county email site they prefer, the date, time and location of the meeting, and the planning board zoom link. Please note we are 8th — last on the agenda. If you have any questions or concerns please let me know!

North Fork Neighborhood Plan draft zoning text amendment begins review process; meeting on June 2, 6pm

The North Fork Land Use Advisory sub-committee members have completed their monumental efforts and now present the revised North Fork Neighborhood Plan draft zoning text amendment for review. Attached you will find four documents: a summary of the revision process; an overview of the changes made; the draft text amendment; and finally the agenda for a North Fork Land Use Advisory Committee (NFLUAC) meeting on June 2nd, 6:00pm, at Sondreson Hall. We ask that you carefully review the draft text amendment and attend this meeting with your questions and comments. We are following the county process and hopefully, at the conclusion of the June 2nd meeting, the committee will vote for submittal to the planning office for a staff report, triggering additional opportunities for comment. If you are unable to participate in this meeting or need further information, or if you know someone who is unaware of the committee’s work and might be interested, please contact me. We hope to hear from you!

North Fork Land Use Advisory Committee meeting for Dec 22 canceled

There has been a recent significant turn of events in the Avila zoning variance matter. It appears now our zoning language makes this variance a done deal. This is confirmed by the planning office email below. This, along with a variety of other logistical considerations, has placed the NFLUAC in an awkward position. This has led to the difficult decision of canceling the upcoming meeting scheduled for this coming Wednesday the 22nd. We do feel it remains important to express your concerns to the planning staff and Board of Adjustment. This outcome underscores the need to complete the text amendment revision. These efforts proceed on and we can assure all landowners that their participation in this endeavor is essential. We look forward to your continued support.


NF Neighborhood Plan and Zoning 3.40.04

3. Any existing lot or tract which cannot meet these setbacks because of size or topographic limitations will be given a variance.

 I spoke with Erik, the director, and he did confirm that this particular variance, it did meet the criteria for approval as stated in The Zoning Regulations, Section 3.40.03 (as you had referenced earlier) and will be granted.  The review of the LUAC is just a formality and will go forward.
