At last night’s Planning and Zoning meeting the commission voted 6-1 to DENY the application for a zone change at Blue Fox Run. The Avon Middle School cafeteria was packed (thank you!) with supporters and when the commission voted the whole place erupted. It was amazing. Thank you to everyone who has supported us on this long journey. Your support and our hard work has paid off. This battle is not over but this win was a very important step in permanently preserving land on Nod Road.
There was plenty of media coverage at last night’s Planning and Zoning meeting where the proposed zone change to Blue Fox was discussed formally for the first time. Save Nod Road had a strong showing of supporters and packed the Avon Middle School cafeteria. The hearing was continued to July 9th, same time, same place.
