The County Board of Supervisors will hold a special meeting Thursday at 2 p.m. to consider repealing the approval of the Mountain Springs Development project. The meeting wasn´t announced until Thursday.
The request to repeal was made by the development investors. They wish to have the project and the upcoming referendum on the March ballot struck down.
At the same time, the developers want the previously approved environmental impact report to stay intact, opening up the possibility that the project may be resubmitted to the board in the future. The controversial report has created division within the board, with Supervisor´s Mark Thornton and Laurie Sylwester opposing it, a main reason they disapprove of the overall plan. Their positions are that the impact report is not complete.
The speed at which the meeting is called is another point of contention.
Supervisors Dick Pland and Larry Rotelli, along with Ratzlaff, voted to approve the development in a 3-2 decision in September.
