I wanted to get the news out that the Board of Commissioners voted to write up the Urban Renewal Ordinance and bring it back for the next meeting. Then they will have public comment on the issue, so they can vote to bring it back for a second reading and for a second vote. And if it passes the second vote of the board the measure will be put on the ballot in November.
Anyone confused? Good
Today was just a discussion on the ordinance change, but it is the beginning of the process. We are moving forward, but do not get discouraged when there are delays or setbacks. In 6 short months we have temporarily prevented a federal land grab and stunted the growth or Urban Renewal.
I know it’s not easy to make all the meetings, but people can email or call the County Commissioners
We are asking everyone to contact the Board of Commissioners and thank them for starting the process on the Urban Renewal ordinance change. Then tell them to put the measure on the ballot and give the people the choice.
It will not happen unless you make that call......
