To the editor:

The Public Hearing regarding a Conditional Use Permit for an 18-house development on the Missouri River next to Clay County Park violated both democratic fairness and numerous provisions of Clay County’s Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Ordinance. Dozens of citizens waited in the overflow crowd to speak against the plan, but Commission Chair Cindy Aden declared public comment closed and invited the applicant’s lawyer back to the podium. He threatened to sue the county, and the application was approved.
