Important Meeting Information
  • Mr. Selan (property owner) has sued the City over the North Valley Planning Commission's ruling against his proposed 112 unit, 2 story 65,797 square foot eldercare facility. Mr. Selan has offered to drop his lawsuit if the SFHOA agrees to support a 39 unit, 1 story 30,000 square foot facility.
  • The City Council has approved new directives to Zoning Administrators regarding Eldercare Facility Applications. The new directives, lawsuit, and settlement proposal will be discussed at the meeting.
  • Only current PAID members of the SFHOA may attend and vote at the meeting. Dues may be paid at the door or go to www.sherwoodforesthoa.org to pay online via pay pal.
  • The SFHOA has incurred and will continue to incur substantial legal fees and other costs. Financial donations beyond dues are vital. Please bring your checkbook.
Note from Mr. Selan's Attoney:
These plans relate only to a settlement and will be withdrawn if a written statement is not reached by September 15. At that point Mr. Selan will continue with litigation seeking to reinstitute his 112 unit proposal.
