According to Ft. Lauderdale City Attorney on Nov. 5, 2020 the Circuit Court has today issued a final order denying AHF’s Petition for Writ of Certiorari, on the merits, which sought to overturn the Board of Adjustment’s decision upholding the City’s interpretation that the proposed project at issue was a Level 5 SSRF. Also note that the U.S. District Court has recently opined that if the Circuit Court denied the Petition, AHF’s federal claims in U.S. District Court would not proceed. Although AHF has appellate recourses, those have a significantly more onerous burdens.
See the following two documents regarding this petition. They have received the required number of signatures and it expected to be on the commission agenda in October. We will also be discussing this at the general meeting of the RVCA on Monday 9/21.
