No objection voiced by RDEK Planning and Development Meeting to addition of, 'Solar Energy Facility as permitted use' on 6656 acre East Hill property.

At the RDEK Planning & Development Committee meeting today, item 9.1.9 was discussed briefly (East Hill property owned by Mr. Novak, with Mr. Priest as agent).  Director Gay indicated he discussed the matter with Mr. Priest re the scale and scope of any proposed solar project. 

This item is being forwarded to the RDEK Board for their meeting tomorrow (Friday, April 8) starting at 9:00 AM in the RDEK board room.  It appeared that there was support for this matter going to a public hearing.

Despite the visibility of the property from the City of Cranbrook, and the scale, which is larger than the city, there seemed to be little concern regarding the proposed change.
