SACRAMENTO – A permit issued to Masser Farms Realty for the construction of a transient housing dormitory style unit for multiple families/persons at 132 Fearnot Road, Sacramento caused one woman to file an appeal, but when she realized she was alone, she decided to withdraw her appeal.
Ruth Herb of Sacramento filed the appeal after Dan Scheib, zoning officer issued a permit for the construction of a 120’x40’ two-unit migrant worker housing facility, which is a permitted accessory use in an agriculturally zoned area.
“I have no problem with Mr. Masser or his business,” said Herb, who didn’t have legal counsel present. “I appreciate all the jobs he provides for the people in our community and am amazed at his success. I appealed this because I have a lot of questions and concerns and I was told that others were also going to appeal it and be here who had questions and concerns.”
