Plan rescinded

To the Editor:

At the County Commisioners meeting on Monday, May 7th, the 2008 comprehensive plan was officially rescinded.

Now the plan is dead.

Many of you may now believe that now we can put this all behind us, but we have just learned a hard lesson about the cost of ignoring our government processes.  My belief is that it is important to stay vigilant and involved, because the next step will be the formation of a new plan for the future development of Switzerland County.  Public input into this new plan has been requested by the commissioners to ensure that this plan is a better considered, better fitting one that truly represents the residents of our county.

 A plan that gets it right this time, and right for Switzerland County.
