A lot of time and money have been invested in the issue thus far, so it's not surprising in the least that the application to erect radio towers in Point Roberts has now found its way into the U.S. court system.
BBC Broadcasting Inc. is appealing Whatcom County's decision to reject the towers in a case that will be heard to the south in Skagit County Superior Court, likely sometime this summer.
The applicant has nothing to lose but more money at this point, but approval to put transmission towers on a lot just south of the Tsawwassen border would be such a windfall that an appeal is obviously being looked upon as a gamble worth taking.
Courts can work in mysterious ways, but it's hard to see this appeal being successful given it's a review of a land use decision that looks pretty darn airtight. Last fall the county's hearing examiner rejected the application, ruling the proposed towers exceed height limits specific to the tiny American peninsula, a decision that was subsequently upheld by the county council in January.
George Harvie CAO of Delta BC puts his foot down in a letter to Whatcom County Council regarding the Appeal.
