notes on government, sports and popular culture
Paul Chesser of Carolina Journal
has an interesting take
on land use issues, filtered through the News & Observer.
But take note, Guilford County voters: You'll be asked to vote on a $20 million bond in November, half of which would go toward the purchase of 1,400 acres to preserve open space. In other words, buy land and do nothing with it.
I'm not saying it's right or wrong, but $10 million is a lot of money for the "preservation of open space." It's just something else to think about when we walk into the voter's booth in November.
