      • The board should not consider aspects not covered by the code

    • Describe the ministerial process, discretion that appears to be involved even at the ministerial level… and situations like this that result in appeals to the board.
      • Ministerial decisions are based on the application of established criteria vs on discretionary critera.
      • On a discretionary scale of 1 to 10… our approach for these situations is a 1.
      • With regard to how we got to this approach?

      • The ordinance does not address us knowing of (or acting upon) existing/past violations
    • What happens if this goes to court?
      • The judge could find that the board interpreted/applied code inappropriately
    • Does the application process include an official statement regarding the current status of compliance?
      • Appendix c includes a statement acknowledging program requirements.
    • Issues that would be considered must be determined to be applicable to the state and county requirements
      • Cultivation without county license… does this qualify as a reason to not approve?
  • County and Special Counsel indicated that they feel the staff presented the right recommendation and that they feel most comfortable supporting this approach.  That said, they understand the reasons for other decisions and would work to support them.
