        ZONING – Re-ZoningCLOVERDALE ALERT

        About NEW ZOINING  being recommended by the Planning  Commission.
        The County Commission voted last year to defer action on creating new zones until the Comprehensive Plan is complete.  But Commissioner Pellish urged the Planning Commission to resubmit them as he believes the politics on the County Commission have changed.

I hope those who agree no action should be taken on these new zones until the Comprehensive Plan is finished will let their views be known either in writing or in person.

Concerned Homeowners & Citizens of Jefferson County

Drafting the Comprehensive Plan for Jefferson County is well underway and is in one of the most critical phases:   Getting community input on a land use map to guide where future growth should occur.  PLEASE drop by your local library next week to provide your thoughts.

        Overview, talk with Power Point Eminent Domain  PATH
        Charles Printz, an attorney in Martinsburg, WV, gave a presentation to the Berkeley County, WV Farm Bureau last summer.  It is an excellent 20 minute lecture that explains what land owners can expect in the court process if power companies want your land for their power lines. Land owners should understand that there is a very good chance that they will receive more in damages from going to court than they will if they accept the power companies’ offers.  You will need to hire an attorney and a real estate appraiser to make your case, but you will more than recover their fees. If you go to court, you have the right to ask for a jury trial with a jury of 12 of landowners from your county.  Do not believe power company land agents when they try to scare you about the court process.  There is nothing to fear.

        WV PSC Turns Tail and Runs from PATH FERC Case
        Just as settlement discussions are reaching a conclusion, what does the WV PSC do?  They cut and run.  Yup.  Last week, the WV PSC filed a letter withdrawing from the PATH abandonment case.  That is the case in which AEP/FirstEnergy are trying to dump millions of dollars of unrecovered costs for their failed PATH project on WV rate payers. AEP/FirstEnergy want $121 million in all from all rate payers in PJM Interconnection’s region.One thing is certain, the WV PSC doesn’t care about our electric rates going up.  Two WV citizens, Alison Haverty and Keryn Newman have been fighting PATH’s bogus rate increases for the past four years with no help from either the WV PSC or the WV Consumer Advocate.  Two other WV citizens, in addition to citizens from MD, have filed as intervenors in the FERC abandonment case, but the WV PSC hasn’t got the time or the interest to stick around and fight for West Virginians. Shame on the WV PSC.SOURCE: http://calhounpowerline.com/2013/08/19/wv-psc-turns-tail-and-runs-from-path-ferc-case/

        I (Cloverdale Homeowner) had a man stop at our house today trying to sell magazines, claiming to raise points for himself for a $5000 reward as part of a program.  He said he had Tourette’s syndrome and it was an organization for such health issues.  I declined to buy any and he went on his way.  He was walking.  Was a rather short man, probably 30 years old, wearing a red jacket.  He told me his name was James. I don’t know if it was legit or not, but definitely creeped me out.  I called to warn some neighbors who I knew were home.  He was nice and all, but the whole situation creeped me out.  I thought other people might like to be warned in case of future instances
