Devon Update - Continuance Granted

We prepared, along with the attorney for the Kingdom Life Christian Center,  the following proviso letter to the ZBA but asked for a continuance, which was granted, because still had not receive the parking agreements in writing as was agreed upon by the parties at our meeting.  There was also other requests by the Church to exchange Board seats with the civic Association which was denied as it goes against our Democratic process and was not discussed at our meeting.  We are currently waiting on a new date.
