Prevent land grab

I do not believe that some of the people in this county can be so blind, as far as Measure D is concerned. This county spent thousands of dollars and years of research to form a general plan. Developers and builders, when they purchased property, knew they have to follow that plan. Now, with NH 2020 looming in the background, all that work and money could very possibly be wasted.

The environmental groups, and the present Board of Supervisors, want to take complete control of everyone’s property, to dictate as they will. Measure D is one way of keeping them under control.

The developers and home builders can only do what the general plan says (not pave the county over or make a laughing stock of anyone). Our board of supervisors must not have much respect for the ones responsible for our present general plan and some of the citizens of the county who only want them to follow that plan.
