Three cheers for our City Commission in St. Augustine for getting this one right, by vote of 4-0. Watch video here, starting 26 minutes in -- PZB and Commission rightly ruled against an illegal berm at 40 Hildreth Way.
From St. Augustine Residents Count by Capt. Lee Geanuleas, U..S.N. (Ret.):
Jim Springfield spoke in favor of the PZB's decision and noted the danger of creating a precedent that would encourage unpermitted construction in Conservation Overlay Zone One by other residents.Cynthia Garris spoke in favor of the PZB's decision and urged the commissioners to listen to the neighbors most affected by the unpermitted berm.
