County Super Majority Requirement Results in Denial of Comp Plan Change

At the Dec 19 County Commission meeting a Comprehensive Plan Amendment was denied because a super majority approval vote was not achieved. Even though three commissioner approved the proposal, but the super majority requirement required four commissioners to approve. This was not achieved.

An interesting "sidebar" is that apparently none of the commissioners was aware of the super majority requirement until after the Board Chair announced the proposal was approved, the applicant was leaving the chambers and then the county attorney indicated that this action required a super majority.

The video of the meeting can be found here. The item is number 10 on the agenda. the video segment is about 6 minutes long.
