Can somebody explain why the guiding principles were changed without public input, and now the public is being asked *if* we believe revisions should be made, rather than having asked us whether or not to revise them before rewriting them? And that is only after the public expressed outrage over their actions. The supervisors pulled the carpet of democracy out from under our feet. It is as hypocritical and self-interested an act of local politics can be. It's a privately funded, pro-development ploy that will manifest as urbanized rural areas in years to come. That means higher basic cost of living for everybody, even greater loss of natural resources (especially existing rural residents) and a more rapid loss of our natural landscape. The people who are ultimately responsible for the GPU coup are multi-millionaire real estate investors from out of the area. Reshaping OUR backyard is just another business deal to them.
