The Planning Commission at
their April 25, 2006 meeting operated entirely within the law.
Both reconsiderations were filed with me within 24 hours of the
Planning Commission's decision by a member of the prevailing
side which is addressed directly under the Rules and Procedures
of the Planning Commission Rule #9. I received the reconsideration
notices on April 12th and on April 13th sent out 160+ Property
Owner Notifications to surrounding neighbors and agencies. We
asked that written comments be made to the Planning Commission
for their April 25, 2006 meeting - which they were. At the April
25, 2006 Planning Commission meeting there was a motion on the
floor with a second so the request was under Planning Commission
consideration and deliberations only. All written notifications
were presented in packets to Commissioners that they reeceived
days before the meeting and any late arriving property owner
notifications were on the table prior to the meeting beginning.
