Update 5-25-21
To date there has been no published decision on Evans Farm Apartments
The County Council will not meet on June 1, so that the earliest it will be addressed would be the County Council’s June 8th Meeting.  No Agenda for that meeting has been published. 
This is what we know so far. 
Susan Canfora from the Coastal Point emailed me on Sunday saying she has asked Mike Vincent when it would be decided and he told her he didn’t know but that it would be published on a future agenda.
And so we wait…
