Will the County Commission Betray Our Trust?
|A covenant was recorded May 30th 2008 with the term above.|
Because of the covenant, the County Commission moved the Urban Development Boundary
for the applicant. Now, 4 years later, on a 30 year covenant,
the owners are trying to get the covenant lifted.
You can Read the entire covenant at this link.
A covenant is a solemn agreement to engage in or refrain from a specified action; A binding agreement; a compact; A formal sealed agreement or contract; A usually formal, solemn, and binding agreement.
A promise was made in 2008 that there would be no residential on this property if only the County Commissioners would move the Urban Development Boundary. The Commissioners listened to this plea and they moved the Urban Development Boundary only if the developers would put a covenant on the property that it would NOT be residential. The developer complied and registered a 30 year covenant. The Urban Development Boundary was thus moved.
Now the Brown's are back only 4 years later and they want residential on this same property. Are they kidding? Is this what the public trust is about? The Planning Advisory Board incredibly said okay to this request. Now let's see what the County Commission does. I would be shocked if they ok this request. They can't ever be trusted if they do.
Victor and David Brown were the main investors in this Charles E. Bloom property. The Browns must have had an option to buy as they were pushing the UDB move even though the Blooms owned it. The Blooms sold the property to the Browns et al for $15,000,000 12/31/2009. The Blooms are holding a $12,750,000 mortgage on the property and they registered the covenant.
