            WHEREAS, the owners of the property, identified by PIN 6969-47-7043-000, have requested a Category 27 Special Exception Amendment to allow for a further reduction of open space in the Cannon Ridge Subdivision to accommodate placement of a water storage silo; and

1.      The proposal for the companion Special Exception SPEX04-MA-020 is not consistent with the Comprehensive Plan.
