1.1 A draft affidavit was reviewed. This affidavit is to give the neighborhood assurance that the property owner would remove the conditional overlay to the zoning at this lot to allow for a day care use, at time that Austin’s Pride & Joy is no longer in business or is no longer operating at this location. Motion passed (unanimous): Zoning Committee recommends that the neighborhood adopt the document with the understanding that Shannon Ratliff, an HNA member, will fine tune the language and add HNA as a signer (Mike Hirsch, President).
