Steep-Slope Controversy in Jackson County

Shades of Boone's municipal elections last fall, when the local unregulated development boosters threw pots of money at defeating the town council over steep-slope regs ... which is to say that down in Jackson County, the county commissioners who passed county-wide steep-slope rules last year are being targeted for defeat by "the real estate and development lobby," which, according to the Smoky Mountain News, "spent the winter seeking out candidates to run who support their view."

This will be worth watching. Look for tons of money to be spent (in order that tons of money can be made, eventually, if the regs are overturned). It's all about the money, honey.
