IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD OR THE COMMUNITY OF YUCCA VALLEY, PLEASE ATTEND THE HOME OCCUPATION WORKSHOP ON TUESDAY, MAY 27th AT 6 PM IN THE COMMUNITY CENTER.
Yucca Valley, Ca.,- The Development Code update has hit a bump in the rubber-stamp-road to being amended according to the wishes of a few. The issue is Home Occupation Permits that are currently on the books to allow gun/ammo sales out of the home, apartment or other multi-family dwelling.
At a previous meeting of the Yucca Valley Planning Commission, four commissioners decided it would be best to conduct a workshop with the community to review the concerns in an open dialog and exchange of ideas. Instead, the Home Occupation ordinance was “noticed” in the legals to advertise a “hearing” and not a workshop.
After a heated exchange of words with the immature hot-headed Chair, Tim Humphreville losing his cool, Staff suggested continuing the “hearing” to another date and scheduling a workshop at the upcoming meeting of Tuesday, May 27, 2014, at 6 PM.
Why attend? If this section of the Development Code does not reflect the concerns and input of the citizens, there will NOT be any basis for Staff to deny Home Occupation Permits in the future.
Wood cutting business you say? Yes, it is a legal business…should it be in a residential neighborhood? How many chain saws are allowed to operate at 6 AM? Wood pickup or deliveries? Yes, there are many questions.
There is a great wealth of talented artists in our community…will there be restrictions on Home Studio Tours or Open Houses? Any size limitations to storage or number of clients visiting daily?
Where will the line be drawn between the rights of the property owner and the rights of the neighborhood to expect “Quiet Enjoyment” of their properties? Bring your neighbors and concerns to this workshop on Tuesday at 6PM in the Yucca Valley Community Center.
