  2. Community Comments – A resident from Cedarcroft asked when we were planning a meeting with the Sheriff to discuss offroad vehicles and clarification on what questions we were asking. We will request a meeting after the new sheriff is announced. It was asked if we could have a volunteer sheriff to help in Acton. We will need to go through the sheriff and let them know that we have community members who would like to volunteer. It was asked whether Council will take a position on the County proposed Business Registration. We will add it to our agenda. Mr Bostwick will ask if it has been scheduled for a hearing and get back to us. A resident asked if the meeting about offroad vehicles with the sheriff could be public? The meeting will be Council only but maybe the Sheriff will come speak at a meeting for the public.

  8. Ms Kuhnhofer, Broker, Kuhnhofer Properties Inc. – Danny and Chris Kuhnhofer want to get a zone change on their property (near All Valley RV) to Commercial. They want to make an enclosed storage facility for RV’s and boats. Jacki brought up concerns that in the past when the council has approved such a request the owner has changed what their plans were when they originally asked for the zone change. They were asked to put together a small drawing of where they would want the building and a description. The ATC will put it on the website and announce it for a meeting so that we can get community input before we weigh in on the zone change.
  9. SEA Follow-up – Jacki ‘s comment letter is almost finished. Why does the County need to take 80% of someones land when they already have more than 80% already set aside. Jacki worked the numbers for lands that are already set aside in and right outside the SEA and it comes up to roughly 83% already set aside. For this reason minor land divisions should be exempt.
