GEM Committee responds to gigantic condo project at Nordic Valley
Guest Post by Kimbal Wheatley, GEM Committee Chair
The GEM committee (Growth with Excellence Mandate) decided to defend the Valley against the Conditional Use Permit for a gigantic condo project adjacent to an existing Nordic Valley neighborhood. And make no mistake about it, this building is huge...it is has the square footage of a Walmart super center and is taller than any building from the Valley all the way to I-15. It is double the size of any building permitted in our land use code.
We carefully researched the law and find that our Planning Commission has full authority and obligation to make approval/denial decisions about conditional use permits consistent with our General Plan and Land Use Code (ordinances). GEM has put together a legal framework we hope will empower the Planning Commission to make a decision to deny the condo project in its current form.
