Don’t take the heat off
It seemed to me that discussions about zoning in Morgan County died down for a while. However, in the past few weeks talk about zoning and a draft zoning study has come back into focus — so much so that in the December 16 issue of The Morgan Messenger I read that Jack Soronen requested Tim Seims and others hold off on angry “ Letters to the Editor” because the draft zoning study is a draft, not a final document, and is a process that has not yet gotten to the point of public comment.
I beg to differ. Just the fact that this draft/study is in progress at any level of discussion by the planning commission is a concern to me and all citizens, especially those who oppose zoning. I suggest that angry letters continue to be sent to the editor. I suggest people keep the pressure on the planning committee and let them know how you feel about zoning and how you object to something that would negatively affect your life and your freedoms on your own land.
If you noticed, many objected to this draft/study which would lead to a final document, but it is happening anyway, isn’t it? That is why you need to keep the “pot of objection” to a very rapid boil.
A lot of you out there are against zoning. Don’t sit back quietly and just let things happen, because they just will, and the result will not always happen to be in your best interest.
