It is a crying shame that the board would unanimously approve such a project. A project which does not adhere to zoning requirements, is far outside of the scope of acceptable uses for the property, will have significant negative impacts on the environment (as well as the surrounding community) and has so many objectors. What is the use of having a public comment session if the comments will not be taken into consideration? It is just a shame the board isn't listening to the citizens.
