11/02/2009: "Critical Areas Ordinance?"
As SJC County moves forward in updating the CAO (Critical Areas Ordinance) regulating development, the questions being asked are: how much control, and what should be allowed, where, and when can it be done. The debate on limits covers the gamut from "Not a damn thing" to "Any damn thing I want;" with a large range of middle ground positions being proposed. There are so many gray areas in the discussions it is like walking in the fog.
On Tuesday night in FH (5:30 at the Grange) some additional questions will be asked and discussed by a local guest panel of speakers.
The Citizen Alliance For Property Rights San Juan (CAPR) has invited a panel to provide answers to the following questions:
• What is the history of the Critical Areas Ordinance?
• How does the San Juan County Uplands CAO affect property owners?
• How can we protect our environment without government intervention?
• What does Citizens' Alliance for Property Rights propose?
• What is the future of land use regulation in our county?
• Should federal and state agencies be able to restrict your property rights?
The dinner event is titled "Who’s who & What’s What?" in San Juan County land use regulations

A poster advertising the dinner and panel discussion states: "Citizens’ Alliance for Property Rights was organized in 2003 as a non-partisan political action committee where individual citizens
and existing organizations can work together defending property rights.
We will support equitable and scientifically sound land use regulations that do not force minority groups of private property owners to pay for public benefits enjoyed by all.
