The 72-acre De Vaul property has been remediated in compliance with county building and land use codes. It has been the subject of nuisance abatement and enforcement action since 2001.
The parties have agreed to a permanent injunction that mandates Dan De Vaul and Sunny Acres maintain the property free of land use, building and health and safety violations. This includes not housing people in illegal structures.
De Vaul and Sunny Acres may now proceed with plans to build a sober living residence for the homeless.
The parties are requesting the Superior Court Judge Charles Crandall sign the Order for Judgment of Permanent Injunction and dismiss the lawsuit.
