...it took 2 years for the 5 corners gas station lawsuit to be resolved? The legal system was a last resort for Save Main - after countless letters, meetings, public comments, and reams of research. It is a slow way to resolve an issue. We are patient.
Here's where we are. Our case is moving ahead into litigation on at least two of the counts outlined in the suit. These counts relate directly to the significant breach in the Village’s zoning code and our resulting assertion that the Apex 400 project should not have been approved. That approval substantially turns away from our own zoning code and decades of planning, changing the zoning code for height and bulk in our downtown's core retail area. Because of our concern over the immediate and long-term implications of the Board’s decision to approve Apex 400, we are prepared to go the distance.
Our case has moved into the discovery phase. The next court date is April 16; the trial date has not yet been set. We will keep you updated as further developments occur.
Discovery is expensive. If you are able to help fund our legal efforts, please go to: https://www.gofundme.com/f/savemain
Save Main Lawsuit Update:
Tuesday, January 14th, 2020
We know everyone is interested to know the status of our lawsuit in regard to the Apex 400 development. We want to stress that we continue to move our case forward. As in all court cases, we operate within the court’s timetable. We remain prepared to meet any challenges.
Notably, Santa Fe has joined in our efforts to prevent Apex 400. Judge Bonnie Wheaton has scheduled a status hearing on February 5th, at which she will decide if Santa Fe will be allowed to join in the suit as an additional plaintiff.
The results of the site investigation including ground penetrating radar, soil borings, and installation of ground monitoring wells done recently by the Village in the Main Street parking lot have not as yet been revealed. We have submitted a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request to see the results.
We pledge to keep you informed as developments occur. Keep in mind that legal expenses continue to accrue. If you would like to help us fund this ongoing fight, any amount of support will be greatly appreciated. Please go to: https://www.gofundme.com/f/savemain
In The News:
The Patch headline is inaccurate.
The lawsuit is not over. There are at least two substantive counts remaining that will be heard in early November. We remain strongly committed to this effort.
