- Coffee County Comission
- United States of America
We have been blessed to benefit from a carefully planned zoning code that has allowed our county to grow while still protecting quality of life, property rights, and the environment. Proper planning is one of the under-appreciated things that makes an area a wonderful place to live.
Unfortunately, that may no longer be the case. If local quarry developers successfully change the zoning code to allow heavy industrial facilities, like landfills, rock quarries, and chemical plants to be more easily placed throughout Coffee County, the consequences would be severe. Residents of Hillsboro would be the first to be affected, with a new rock quarry in their back yard, but once the door is open, any industrial developer would find it easy to set up shop anywhere in the county.
That's why we're opposed to the County Commission changing the zoning code at this developer's behest. That's why our county Planning Commission has recommended AGAINST changing the zoning code at this developer's behest. And that's why we know ordinary citizens from across our county oppose changing the zoning code as well.
We, the undersigned, call on our elected officials to preserve and protect our zoning regulations as currently drafted;
Consider the needs and desires of regular citizens as well as big developers;
Respect the opinion of the county Planning Commission; and,
Vote against the proposed changes to the Coffee County Zoning Ordinance.
