Last I heard the Restore N Station’s special use permit was denied.
… is facing allegations that he trumped the power of the Board of Supervisors … Higgins determined in writing on August 19th that water usage on the land where the large gas station would be built wouldn’t need a special use permit, effectively determining that Re-Store ‘N’ Station could go ahead with construction, because the project would use less than 400 gallons of water per site acre per day.
* Can we at least get some consistency on the spelling of the proposed gas station?
Searching Albemarle.org for the gas station is tough. Which one is it?
– Restore ‘n Station
– Restore’n Station
– Restore N’ Station
– Restore N Station
Update: An email from Ron Higgins, which I am publishing as it’s addressed to the “citizens of Crozet.” I wasn’t on his email list, and I’m assuming most of y’all weren’t either.
Dear citizens of Crozet, CCAC members and interested parties:
First, as Elaine indicated, I am writing to apologize for any perception that we were trying to keep any actions regarding the Re-Store N’ Station project from anyone who has expressed interest. There was a misconception on our part that more people were aware of the recent new proposal and request for new determination from the applicants of the Re-Store N’ Station project. I feel very bad about folks who may have felt blind-sided by the Determination last Thursday.
Secondly, we have discussed that August 19, 2010 determination at length with the County Attorney who has raised a number of issues with it. Therefore we are working with them to re-examine the determination and any revision that might be warranted will be released in the next week, at the latest. We will keep everyone informed about this and will share it as soon as it is completed. Our desire is to make this as clear, defensible and enforceable as we can.
Thank you all for your understanding and patience on this complicated project and issue.
To which Supervisor Rodney Thomas replied:
I personally want to Thank You for your genuine honesty in finding the true meaning of your interpretation.
I have no idea what that means.
