Dean Christon mentions two core areas: Providing additional tools for planning and zoning boards as well as mandating shorter approval times for projects.
From the bills and the plan’s documentation we see this as nothing more than brainwashing in the form of training in the acceptance of the lexicon of ‘new urbanism’.
Mandating shorter time frames in which boards must make decisions on projects leaves not enough time to clear projects with Historic and Conservation boards, thus throwing decisions to the illegal State Housing Appeals Board.
Once again the talk doesn’t match the reality of what is contained in the program or the two bills proposed by liberal Carsey Institute ‘graduates’ and now State Representatives Willis Griffith and Gates Lucas.
But we have done the digging and we have the details.
