AJC NDA testifies to appeal The Courts non-conforming use

Representatives from the Ardenwald Neighborhood Association and neighborhood residents testified today to appeal the Type II decision on Eastmoreland Racquet and Courts Club.

About 30 people packed into the Hearing Room at the Bureau of Development Services Monday morning to hear testimony in support of the appeal to the decision in case LU 13-231651 NU (non-conforming use).

Ardenwald-Johnson Creek Neighborhood Association land-use chair Lisa Gunion-Rinker immediately requested the record to remain open in her testimony.

A request to leave the record open grants a seven-day extension before the hearing officer can make a decision.

Firends of Tideman Johnson Park representative Marianne Colgrove also testified in support of the appeal.

The Eastmoreland Racquet and Courts Club owner, Terry Emmert, was present at the appeal hearing.
