STOP the Plan to BLOCK the SUN

Proposed construction of a five story building on River Road between Crown Village and the Eleanor Van Gelder School will block sunlight to school children in the morning and leave over 100 residents of crown village in shadows all afternoon.

There is a hearing planned for January 6th.

Please Attend.

Re: STOP the Plan to BLOCK the SUN

We haven't yet seen the drawings for the proposed building. Anyone know if it would also block the morning sun from hitting the solar panels we have just voted to have installed on EVG School?

The meeting on January 6th is the Board of Adjustments, isn't it?

If so, they are going to start at 6 p.m., in order to complete work on the request for at least 9 variances on the proposed development by SGS (next to Edgehill between River Road and Route 5).

It would be wonderful to have many concerned Edgewater citizens there for the entire meeting, including the reorganization of the Board with new members having just been appointed and confirmed by the Mayor and Council earlier that week.

Re: STOP the Plan to BLOCK the SUN

Concerned, assuming you're an owner at Crown Village, your association needs to hire a lawyer. The Board has ignored entire rooms of opponents in the past; i.e., when it allowed restaurant parking at GW School and permitted tennis courts on a Superfund site.

Re: STOP the Plan to BLOCK the SUN

Yes, hire a lawyer....and show up at the board meetings, with as many neighbors as possible, prepared to speak to your concerns.

Re: STOP the Plan to BLOCK the SUN

This plan will be approved by the Bd. of Adjustment. When did Edgewater Democrat officials ever say no to Fred and Jimmy? Opponents should hire the necessary experts to develop a record for an appeal to Superior Court. Residents only have themselves to blame for blindly electing local Democrats year after year.

Re: STOP the Plan to BLOCK the SUN

I am not familiar with this area of Edgewater - - what is on that property right now? Single-standing houses?

It's a wooded lot sandwiched between the post office, EVG school, and Crown Village. It is accessible from both River Road and Winterburn.

Re: STOP the Plan to BLOCK the SUN

We have attorneys, surbeyors, and experts. What we need is for the mayor to know that this weill be remembered. Cast your vote in opposition at mayor@edgewatergov.org

CC, the Mayor does not have a vote on the Board of Adjustment. Also, are your attorneys, surveyors, and experts going to testify at the next hearing? What is very important for you and your neighbors to remember is that when an appeal is made it is only on "the record below", meaning, no NEW testimony can be introduced in court. If you have expert testimony against this project, get it in on the record. Saying to the board, "I don't like it because it blocks the sun" is not an argument that will hold up in a court of law. Hopefully you will find this advice helpful and get your experts to the next hearing. It IS possible to appeal a decision to the courts without prior objecting expert testimony, but it is extremely rare, and rarely successful.
