A high-density, out-of-place, out-of-character housing project... in the very middle of our community?
A shoddy development plan that violates several county ordinances... but gets rubber-stamp approval anyway?
A plan that was recognized as being so poor, it received 14 straight NO votes... yet was approved by just one YES vote?
Sounds like the corruption of a different place and time, doesn't it? Perhaps Chicago under the Daley machine? Or maybe Kansas City during the Pendergast era of the 1930's?

Unfortunately, it's here, and it's now. The place: Platte County. The time: now.
On December 2, 2013, the Chapel Ridge Planned Residential rezoning and preliminary plat was APPROVED through a technicality. Despite having never received a single YES vote from any other county official, just one person - Jason Brown, Platte County Presiding Commissioner - was able to "railroad" Chapel Ridge to approval with just his one vote. See our facts page for more information on how this technicality was carried out, and on the appeal effort now underway to reverse this controversial and ill-advised decision.

While we share a common goal of stopping this bad idea named Chapel Ridge, the South Platte County Voice is a separate and unaffiliated grassroots project. Thank you, Chris and Sarah, for your efforts and your tireless research on this blog!
