March 21, 2006 Crow’s Nest property owners, K&M Properties (a.k.a. Stafford Lakes LP) have dropped a challenge to a judge’s ruling regarding Crow’s Nest, but have filed a new appeal regarding their proposed development plan. The appeal that was dropped had challenged part of the judge’s ruling in response to a citizen-initiated law suite about Crow’s Nest. The new appeal challenges the Planning Commission’s unanimous rejection of K&M’s proposed development plan. The Crow’s Nest Defense Fund, LLC has retained Attorney David Bailey to represent citizens’ interests in the legal actions regarding Crow’s Nest. The Defense Fund is a non-profit organization, and needs your financial support to continue the legal effort to protect the natural and cultural resources on the Crow’s Nest peninsula.
