[facebook]PROPOSED AMENDMENTS to STANDARDS & REGULATIONS
INCLUDE the REMOVAL of ZONING CLASSIFICATIONS and REQUIREMENTS
Adams County Board of County Commissioners Hearing
Monday Dec. 13th, 2010 beginning promptly at 10:00am
Admin Building, 450 south 4th Avenue, Brighton
ADAMS COUNTY- Concerned Citizens for Compatible Development (CCCD), a grassroots coalition of neighborhood groups, business owners, and property rights advocates, has raised concerns regarding the possible impact to both existing and future residents of Adams County that the proposed zoning amendments to the Standards & Regulations may have.
The proposed amendments appear to remove many of the provisions previously intended to protect existing and adjacent residents, neighborhoods, and businesses from incompatible use and development. By removing “specific” requirements, intended or not, the potential for greater opportunity exists for “inequity” and/or “corruption” to the detriment of the residents.
Many citizens are unaware of the alleged threat posed by transit oriented development (TOD) in regards to property owners, especially for those residents and businesses within a one-mile radius of transit stations. The proposed amendments to zoning rules taking place in Adams County and elsewhere, to apparently accommodate TOD, will impact citizens county and state wide, not just those located near transit.
CCCD is encouraging Adams County residents to attend the Board of County Commissioner Hearing on Monday, December 13th, 2010, beginning promptly at 10:00am, to voice their opinion on the above matter.
