No-Zoning Results in Haywood County

Here's a sad tale of ruined fortunes due to a lack of land-use planning ... people lost their home due to "slope failure" in Waynesville. Boone is right now struggling with the issue of how to regulate development on steep slopes. Apparently Waynesville and Haywood County aren't anywhere close to considering the same.

In the meantime, the victims are reaching out for advice on a hyper-conservative website, where we're sure they'll get very solid advice about how land-use regs would have only made their situation worse.
