Why Sustainable Development in Bradley County?
It is a property grab and your property rights are in jeopardy!
The United Nations Conference on Human Settlements states “ Land…cannot be used as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice… Public control of land is therefore indispensable…” “The effect of this process is to remove the decision-making process from the people and their elected officials and put the process and the outcome in the hands of the appointed professionals and special interest groups called stakeholders”
Public Act 1101 requires your elected leaders to hold two public hearings in the process of developing the County’s plan and present it to elected officials for approval. Elected officials have 120 days to ratify or reject the plan, failure to do one of the other results in automatic ratification. Counties that ratify the plan are subject to significant rewards! The following International codes minus the asterisks are already active in Bradley County!
This Comprehensive Land use Plan with these UN influenced codes transforms both the process through which decisions that govern citizens are made, and the market place where citizens earn their livelihood. The fundamental principal that government is empowered by the consent of the governed is completely bypassed in the process of developing the BCC 2035 Strategic Growth Plan. Nowhere in the process do the citizens, even through their elected officials, have an un-coerced opportunity to dissent, or withhold their consent. The plan was presented by appointed professionals, presented to elected officials, who may either approve the plan, or deny their citizens access to significant funding opportunities. Once government has the authority to control the use of privately owned land, as in the case in Bradley County, and throughout Tennessee, the natural step is for government to dictate the behavior of the people who own the land that the government controls.
The question remains- Are we ready to surrender free market capitalism, individual freedom of choice, private property rights, and government empowered by the consent of the governed? If we are, then we must explain to our elected officials with great accuracy and enthusiasm a better way to confront the future. Local communities must be free from state mandates that ignore state sovereignty. If the people are to have a voice in their government, and provide the consent that authorizes government action, people must be involved in these processes of government.
Tell your Elected Leader to VOTE NO on the Growth Plan that is going to cost you billions and will cause you to surrender your property rights and increase your taxes. Go to bradleyco.net, call them!
