Since when does the Journal not do its homework on a story? You throw up a slam on a legitimate concern, is this what the Journal has lowered itself too?
Why are you so quick to accept that our county planning dept is looking out for us? Remember this is the same dept that threatened to TEAR DOWN a little boy’s treehouse (on a stump) over the SMA even though F&G said OK. This is the same out-of-control dept that is doing our general plan and the plan will have more control over our lives, not just being able to build a home.
It’s called a comprehensive plan for a reason as the plan controls our roads, water, air, energy, where we live, how we live to name a few. It wasn’t until recently that the public got a look at its entirety and it’s daunting. Do you think the document as it stands is perfect and we will all live happily ever after?
For people to be concerned about the less-than-open process and the comprehensive content is what free people are supposed to do. For you to criticize dissenters you don’t agree with instead of trying to understand the nature of their concern shows the level of ignorance you’re comfortable with. Do your homework and prove Kay wrong don’t bully her.
The first thing you should know about Agenda 21 is that Democrats and Republicans are behind it. Here are three different viewpoint websites to start:
State Parks at Little River came through with bulldozers a couple years back and mowed down the dunes to remove the beach grass then they roped off the dunes. It became a playground for ravens and crows and pretty much ran off the Snowy Plovers, a threatened species. Now State Parks wants to do this trail treatment - tearing up part of an existing road to put in a horse and bike trail.
This new trail treatment isn't necessary and the funds should be reallocated to plant native plants where the dunes were mowed down. Doing so would create some habitat to protect the freshwater wetlands and give the snowy plover suitable nesting areas.
All kinds of beach lovers have been using the existing trails for decades. Horse people have a great relationship with State Parks but for some reason they are going rouge at Little River. The equestrian community has been stonewalled from a public process that is not so public. We should all be concerned about this lack of process and transparency.
