Alright everybody, its time to get serious here. In discussing this case with a few people with the requisite knowledge, we feel its time to take an aggressive step. We are going to file as a non profit in order to obtain representation. We have been advised that having a land use attorney deliver our appeal will send a strong message and help our chances, not to mention the need to retain one if this thing passes as is.
Remember, this is not a matter of just not liking a development, these developers have not put the requisite work in to protect our neighborhood and its citizens. We’re talking thousands of car trips on our rural roads every day with no improvements to our infrastructure, no increase in fire access or exits and the list goes on. This plan has not met minimum requirements to pass and the only kind of commissioner that says it does is a dirty one. We need to fight back on behalf of our community, AND our county.
Many of you have donated graciously to our previous campaigns for the appeal application fee and to put an advertisement in the RGJ to get people to band together. Now we just need a little more to take this next step.
We will need at least 5 grand to retain an attorney, and if this thing continues it could go over 10, so we are setting this at 5k, but there is no cap. After gofundme takes its cut, we will have a few hundred bucks left over from the other campaigns that we will roll into this. Any excess in this campaign will go towards potential future litigation, or be refunded once the process is over.
Thank you so much for your time, efforts and dedication. Please share and help us reach this goal. We are extremely limited on time.
