~ ensure that local officials and their Land Use boards safeguard the health and safety of our citizens and first responders.
~ protect the character of our neighborhoods.
~ oppose land-use variances that adversely affect our diverse communities.
~ ensure that local, county, state, and federal laws are followed.
~ work with appropriate authorities to prevent and prosecute illegal housing and related activities.
We are a 501c3 non-profit community-based organization
that was formed to orchestrate awareness of changes that adversely impact our diverse community. To accomplish our mission, we interface with state, county, and local governments and agencies, and first responders to identify unsustainable, unsafe, and/or unlawful proposed development, as well as illegal housing practices.
We retain lawyers and consultants to advise, prepare and take action, when necessary and appropriate, in furtherance of our mission.
We created our organization to help ensure that each municipality with a CUPON chapter will make more informed Land Use decisions, follow the law in making those decisions, and properly enforce state and local codes before, during, and after development. We hope our efforts to educate and advocate will lead to better decision-making that is more respectful of the environment and the concerns of all residents who have a vested interest in maintaining a sustainable and harmonious community.
