Mark W Heckele started this petition to San Juan County, Dept. of Community Dev. The Residents of Deer Harbor South

San Juan County ("SJC"), in conjunction with Orcas Vision Preserve, LLC (John Vechey) ("OVP"), is seeking to change the land use designation of four (4) parcels of land owned by OVP, comprising ~110 acres, from Forest Resource (FOR) to Rural Farm Forest (RFF) to accommodate the development of affordable housing in the rural area south of Deer Harbor on Orcas Island. This proposed change adversely affects all of us, as proximate landowners, for many reasons including: the extirpation of the natural beauty and resources of the land; overuse of precious natural resources (e.g., groundwater); and the desirous rural character, and value, of our properties.

Although we understand both the need and benefit of affordable housing on the Islands, we don't think this is the right location.

If you agree, then let your voice be heard now, before it's too late.
