Let's slow down this process

In November, a real estate agent contacted me concerning changes to the planning and zoning office. The local real estate organization requested a meeting to understand these changes. The meeting was held and due to concerns by the real estate agents the county board agreed to a 30-day extension until Dec. 20 for written comments. I have talked with numerous people including two town board chairmen that are totally unaware of these proposed changes. There are numerous county residents who are snowbirds, leaving the area in early fall and returning in late spring. The changes will occur in their absence. If this concerns you contact your county commissioner to slow down this process until all citizens are aware of the changes.
