Nevertheless, juwi asked the board on Aug. 28 to listen to a modification of the second condition, the property value guarantee proposal. Why would anyone think it was a denial of “due process” because the president refused to allow such testimony? When Acres pressed the juwi attorney whether she was going to stay only within the framework of what was advertised in the notice and not introduce anything regarding a modification of conditions, she said juwi had nothing further to discuss.
Juwi’s manipulation tactic was to get to the public hearing phase under false pretenses of presenting a proposal for a property value guarantee and then instead ask the board to eliminate such a guarantee as a condition of approval, when the board already had voted in July that it was not going to hear testimony on any modification of conditions.
The president stayed true to the rules while juwi, the plan director, and the attorney all tried to maneuver the board into giving juwi something to appeal by forcing a vote to deny its request.
The president remained firm to protect the integrity of the board by upholding its March decision as final and its July decision to not amend the rules to re-open discussion on a decided case. He is then accused of collusion, of denying due process, and is now the subject of a lynch mob to get him removed from the BZA.
Remember the principles of ethics and of decency and of right and wrong that our grandmothers taught us, and then ask what on earth has happened to this county.
