Regarding East Hill Zoning Application, RDEK Thursday April 7 at 2:15pm

 Re:  East Hill Zoning Referral

For clarification, Cranbrook Council discussions on the East Hill zoning referral reported in the Thursday, March 24 Townsman are correct in saying that RR-60 zoning designation on the property would not be changed. However, adding “solar energy facility” to the list of permitted uses for that zone would allow a utility scale “solar energy facility” to be constructed over some, any or all of the 6,600 acre property. To suggest that Cranbrook resident’s interests would not be affected by such a potentially massive and visually intrusive development overlooking the east side of the City is misleading.  

Also see our post of March 29th.

This item will be discussed at the RDEK Planning Committee meeting on April 7th 2:15pm  in the RDEK Board Room.   The public are able to attend as an observer, in addition to the RDEK Board meeting on April 8th at 9 AM in the RDEK Board Room. Below is the agenda for the RDEK Planning Meeting at 2:15, April 7th

The agenda for that meeting can be viewed below or at:
