CONSERVATIVES COMING AROUND ON STEEP SLOPE REGULATION?
Holy cow! A leading conservative website in NC publishes an extensive screed about the need to regulate development on steep slopes. My, my, my. To find sentiments like this on a site dominated by no-zoners: "Developers have profited greatly from this laissez-faire regulatory environment and have been allowed to place homes virtually any where they please."
Interesting also because we understand that a bill has been or will be introduced soon in the NC legislature to impose state standards on mountain counties to certify "buildability" on slopes. We'll see how that plays.
