I spoke with county commissioner Billy Yow today about the scenic corridor. Unlike his fellow commissioner, Steve Arnold, Yow was more than happy to talk to me while conducting business.

I asked him what he thought about the scenic corridor.

"I don't think much of it," he said.

Yow's major problem is with the setbacks and the buffers, which can create hundreds of acres of unusable space on a parcel of land, space on which landowners are paying property tax.

Yow's suggestion: make land rendered undevelopable by the scenic ordinance tax-exempt.
