Canyon Springs <br />has significant concerns regarding the proposed moratorium being considered in conjunction <br />with the proposed General Plan Update (the "GPU"). Specifically, the Community Development <br />Director has recommended that the Town Council consider implementing a two-year moratorium <br />on the further processing of development applications. (See Town Council Staff Report (Feb. <br />13, 2018), at 2.) We request that the Town Council strongly consider the need for such a <br />moratorium given the existing housing situation. At the very least, any such moratorium should <br />not apply to development applications that have been submitted to the Town prior to initiation of <br />the GPU or the proposed moratorium itself. <br />I. THE MORATORIUM SHOULD NOT APPLY TO PENDING APPLICATIONS <br />If the Town adopts a moratorium, it should apply only to development applications that post-date <br />adoption of the moratorium, and should not apply retroactively to pending applications. <br />The Staff Report for the February 13 Town Council meeting states: <br />The Council may choose to continue business as usual or limit <br />planning application (land use application) review during the 2040 <br />General Plan Update. In order to regulate application processing, <br />Council would need to adopt a moratorium for a maximum of two <br />years... <br />95872619.3 0033999-00001 <br />
