Subsequent to this hearing, the Hearing Officer issued the attached Recommended Order, which recommends that the City Council deny the Petitioner's petition and adopt the MPB's recommended approval of the Mariposa applications. Petitioner timely filed an Exception to the Recommended Order, attached hereto.
