Gait also required that Schultz acquire a water rights permit from the state. Schultz is appealing the "no cutting', restriction to the county council. The council will hear the appeal on September 28 during a regular meeting and at that time decide whether to held a public hearing. They could also simply decide to uphold the examiner's decision at that time. Written comments on whether or not to schedule a hearing on the appeal will he accepted by the council until 5 p.m., September 26th. The taking of public testimony during the September 35th meeting is at the discre- tion of the council. George Sherwin, manager of the coun- ty's planning division, said the issue of the last week's tree cutting further corn- plicates the subdivision application. "If Mr. Schultz does nothing more, the coun- ty has two choices: either let things stand as they are or initiate a new hearing before a hearing examiner." The county, said Sherwin, is currently deciding what course to take. Ronaid Schultz, meanwhile, said he re- mains angry about the county's and the neighborhood's interference in his pro- ject. He noted again that he previously had permission from the state Depart- ment of Natural Resources to log the pro- party, and he said earlier that he intend- ed to finance the development from the sale of his timber. "That restriction doesn't make sense to me," he said. Schultz suggested that ff the neighborhood wanted a "park," he would sell the land to them. "I could also shert-plat the land or do a five-acre division and then the neighborhood wouldn't have any say." from page 1) Mr, Rab I throughout her _~_garden is an excellent nce"]~tt'use concept for an ~.ty lot.
