The Loveland City Council adopted on a 7-2 vote stretched over 6 separate resolutions the annexation of five McWhinney owned parcels into the City of Loveland called the Grange Addition, changes in zoning for the "Savanna Addition" and other changes to the Millennium Addition PUD at their June 24 meeting.
One adjacent property owner who spoke to the council, Kelly Jo Bonser, asked, "Is this normal - to do so many in one evening...?
Especially eerie was the lack of discussion over so many complex and consequential items. Of course, many of these items were already discussed with the City Council in advance via secret meetings at McWhinney headquarters where the public was unable to attend.
Councilmen Kent Solt and Cecil Gutierrez voted no while the rest were in lock-step with Mayor Pielin in supporting the many resolutions.
Next step will be the August meeting where the Council debates giving the authority to add properties to the McWhinney tax MFA (Master Finance Agreement) to McWhinney.
