I recently became aware of the debate over the application for conditional use permit to allow “Smallpond Childcare” to build a business in the residential subdivision of Noview. I have owned property in this subdivision for a number of years, and I am also opposed to the application by Smallpond requesting a variance governed under the Homer CPU.
This is an emotional issue, and we all love our children, and I’m certain the community most certainly needs high quality childcare facilities. However, trying to build such a facility seeking an approval for a “conditional use permit application” in our subdivision is simply wrong.
I feel the Homer Advisory Planning Commission opposition was correct.
