Development Committee

What We Are

What We Are NOT

vs.

Take direction from board on behalf of

TNA residents

Oppose specific projects only when representing interests of nearest neighbors

vs.

Lone Rangers

A resource when you build or have concerns about construction near your home

Understand Code and City’s process

vs.

An obstacle to your building plans

Supporters of building codes designed to protect property values

vs.

The “style” police


Activities to Date Development Committee

  • Developing City contacts, learning processes for zoning, code compliance, building codes

  • Assisted one resident

    • Fence designed to Code, no variance request needed

  • Participated in three “variance request hearings” before City Board of Adjustment

    • Opposed two cases because:

      • Building project violated codes

      • No building permit

      • Nearest TNA residents were opposed and asked for help

    • Remained neutral in one case because:

      • Nearest neighbors were not opposed to the development


Long Term OptionsDevelopment Committee

  • Current zoning and building codes do not address all concerns voiced by TNA members

  • Continue meeting with City Planning to understand alternatives available to neighbors

  • Contacted City Councilman: he will support efforts with preponderance of community support


SummaryDevelopment Committee

  • Continue to follow TNA defined process

  • Encourage participation of TNA neighbors

  • Educate about current Codes and procedures

  • Learn about and share alternatives to current zoning

  • Gain consensus
