I don't have to tell this group that this rewrite will greatly affect the quality of life in Jefferson County for the next several decades. For instance, I find it interesting that section 4.304, which outlines the capacity calculations for a Neighborhood Conservation (Mountain) - which is what virtually *all* of Shannondale falls into - has had only minimal changes from what was presented at the meeting at the MCC a few months ago.
Six "public comment" meetings have been scheduled to provide an overview to the Ordinance and for the County Commission to receive public comments and questions. The following is the schedule published by the County Commission:
Shepherdstown District: Wednesday, November 28, 2007 at 7pm at the War Memorial Building, Shepherdstown Men's Club, upstairs meeting room, 102 East German Street;It is my understanding that comments may also be submitted to the County Commission in writing at any time through December 17, 2007.
