5 New Developments In Our Area - Never Vetted By This Community Post: Nathan
Just wanted to make you all aware of some upcoming developments in our COI area. As far as I am aware, not a single one of these were brought to a community meeting for this community to comment on or vet first. Just wanted to share.

NOTE: All links below to locations are rough as the descriptions are not very specific so I got them as close as I could.

Just wanted to inform you all. This is why the recent General Plan updates were so important as the County now has the authority to change any part of our area to commercial as they see fit.

PLEASE MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD! Call the County or email the address' above and let them know how you feel about not having any say in the development of your community.
