1/12 11am update: The hearing is on for today at 1pm! There are 4 board members confirmed for the hearing. See you there!
The next hearing will be on Tuesday, January 12, 2015 at 1pm. Please watch this post for updates the morning of the hearing.
We greatly appreciate everyone who has made the effort to be at each of the hearings the past few months. Unfortunately, there are many things out of our control (i.e. getting enough board members to show up). The current plan is to present our case at the next hearing on Tuesday, January 12th at 1pm, however we won’t know until probably Tuesday morning if there will be enough board members. We will attempt to keep you updated with as much information as possible.

The Metropolitan Board of Zoning Appeals Division II will hear two of our appeals:
- Improvement Location Permit (2015-AP2-001)
- Flood Permit (2015-AP2-002)
The board has the authority to revoke the issued permits and stop the proposed gas station. Here are the details on the hearing:
When: Tuesday, January 12, 2015 at 1:00pm.
What: Board of Zoning Appeals Division II
Where: Public Assembly Room, 2nd Floor of the City-County Building, 200 E. Washington St.
Parking: Here is a list of places to park around the City-County Building
Please come and show your support for the appeals! We realize it is during the day and many have to work, but if you have some flexibility in your schedule, please make every effort to attend. At the November hearing, those in opposition to the gas station had the opportunity to stand and be recognized.
We, the petitioners, are given 15 minutes to present our case. The remonstrators, the developer, is then given 15 minutes for their side followed by 5 minutes of rebuttal/closing statements for each side.
If the votes during the January 12 hearing are also indecisive, our appeals will be transferred to another division.
During the November 10th Hearing, the vote was 2-1 (in our favor)! Three votes are needed for any action of the board to be official & only three board members were present.
