These comments were submitted by Thornton Tayloe during the Board of Supervisors February 13th Meeting.
As everyone on the board is well aware that we have been dealing with various issues relating to zoning, land use, permitting, wetlands, VMRC, DEQ, Army Corp of Engineers, multiple violations and etc with an adjoining property at 19489 Robin Road owned by Salt Grove LC/Eyre Baldwin.
I have sent numerous emails which have gone largely unanswered to everyone on the Board, Zoning Office, Building Department, County Administration, County Attorney and etc.
These emails include questions like:
– Are water quality impact assessments supposed to be completed before any construction, land disturbance or after?
– Are Zoning Clearances supposed to be completed before any construction, land disturbance or after?
– Is a certificate of occupancy supposed to be given before people are living in a building that has had its use changed of after?
– Why does the County provide instructions it does not intend to pursue?
The County has established a well outlined process for development and re-development that has not been followed in the above matter at this location for over a decade. This process is in place for attaining the proper permitting, clearances and etcbefore any development or re-development. These rules and regulations exist to protect our way of life and to protect our fragile ecosystem of the Chesapeake Bay.
What has the County done or is going to do to ensure the processes it created are followed?
How many after-the-fact permits and after-the-fact zoning clearances are too many?
When is enough enough?
