Radical limits

To the Editor:

This June we have a chance make a smart choice and approve the updated Land Use Ordinance (LUO). It was the result of a diligent tidying up of the current ordinance.

Despite what some may have inferred, this rewrite carefully avoided major changes and was crafted to simply be a more user-friendly document. It is a slow, methodical step forward.

Conversely, proposed Questions 3 and 4 seek to radically limit our future options for water, telecommunications and electric service infrastructure. This issue deserves to be considered more methodically. We need to avoid its blanket restrictions which we may come to regret.

Therefore, I urge voters to vote “yes” on number 2, and “no” on questions 3 and 4.
