Re: Cordevista Application to Storey County

Dear Mark:

        This letter is on response to your letter dated July 13, 2007. We could not disagree more with the numerous mischaracterizations in your letter. No real purpose would be served by addressing each mischaracterization other than to say we dispute your statements and conclusions. The actions of Storey County regarding the application for the Cordevista project have not had an air of hostility, do not contain anomalies and are not lacking a rational basis.

        The scope, size and complexity of the proposed Cordevista project is one that requires a great deal of prudent analysis on the part of Storey County. Your comparison of this project to the Painted Rock project is misplaced, as the projects are not comparable in size, scope and complexity. Instead, the Cordevista project is more comparable to the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center project, which you yourself pointed out required contract representation of Storey County, and a much more involved, thus "different," process than other applications for smaller projects.

        The actions of Storey County in retaining outside counsel and requesting our review and/or presence of various meetings and activities is only a prudent and appropriate action of Storey County.With a project the size of Cordevista, and the possibility of applications for similar projects in the future, Storey County is taking reasonable measures to ensure that it acts appropriately and prudently in its review of all such applicants, now and in the future. Thus, the actions of Storey County are rationally related to its duties to fully and fairly analyze all planning and zoning applications.
