I'm against the landfills, I'm against fracking and the storage facility to the south. I'm considered young and was never alive when the foundry was operational.
It's not the responsible people that the city and councilors are worried about. The reasons given were political. They don't want to have to deal with the headaches and money of having code enforcement out looking at these, citing citizens, going to court over the issues, ect. It's easier and cheaper for them to just say no. With that said, I think that the outlined and detailed requirements would greatly reduce the amount of people who weren't serious about doing it, I think a few families would do it, do it well, and enjoy it.
Personally, I'm not for it because I hate eggs, but that shouldn't stop someone who was serious about doing this the opportunity. For $47.78 per thousand assessed, the highest tax rate around, we should be able to do whatever we want on our property. The schools here are terrible, 60% of the real property is off the tax rolls, we should get some bang for our buck!!! Glad the city manager got a 9% raise while we all got a 7% raise on our water costs!
