Deerbrook PUD Appeal Hearing

Southeast Neighbors filled Harris Hall last night, 11/14/2012, for the Deerbrook PUD appeal hearing before the Eugene Planning Commission.

Our attorney Dan Snyder and everyone who spoke for the headwaters, and all who came and bore witness, did a great job! Thanks to all!!

Sadly, Rick Satre (planner) and Bill Kloos (attorney) representing the developers repeatedly asserted various false statements of fact, to such an extent, in my opinion, that they traversed the reasonable bounds of professional ethics – and certainly fed a good deal of confusion.

Here’s to wishing the appointed, volunteer members of the Planning Commission good luck in sorting out facts from fiction in this appeal. If they can do that, even partway, then an appropriate affirmation of the Hearings Official denial of the development application will be assured.

Go Team SEN! Go Team Eugene!
