Jordan Lake update

So apparently last night's BoCC vote was not actually to rezone the land around Jordan Lake, but merely to remove it from the watershed buffer protected area, so that the Board can come back at some near future date, and rezone it for the density desired by the developers of the so-called 751 Assemblage project.

As predicted, though, the vote was 3-2 in favor of the developer.

Ray Gronberg in the Herald-Sun has an excellent report up.
One can predict that when the development is actually approved, it will be the worst case scenario, lacking public transit access, and adding far fewer jobs to the local economy than its supporters hope. In fact, i'll predict that most of the jobs that end up there will go to people who don't even live in Durham.

My head hurts.

my favorite part of the HS story: "Page added that he resents claims that the commissioners are allowing more pollution in the lake."

Resent away, sir. Doesn't make it any less true.
