Ethics question for our practicing Planners:
My co-worker asked if they should remove themselves as the lead planner for a variance application that is approximately 1800 feet from her house. They do not fall within our noticing area from the project, but she asked and I told her well, maybe, can you be objectionable? (my view is to deny the variance, but than again, I don't do variances). What say you? Hard / Fast rule set up by your City Attorney / PD?
