Letter to the editor: On the Sitting Bull tract controversy

May 29, 2012

I am a resident of Apple Valley and live about 2 1/2 miles from this site. I do try to attend the Council meetings. I was troubled by the comments Council members Curt Emick and Ginger Coleman made about this zone change.

1) Councilman Emick asked to revisit the Sitting Bull Road zoning issue on behalf of the Skyline Ranch citizens. This was after he, at the previous meeting, voted not to change the zoning. There are more than 1,000 signatures on a petition that was circulated in the Skyline Ranch area to keep the zoning as is. There wasn’t any petition to change the zoning.
