Monday, June 4th 2012, 7pm at the Bradley County Courthouse Commission meeting room the citizens of Georgetown Tennessee will attend the vote on an Industrial Zoning request by a local citizen.
Judith Allen has requested 223 acres be rezoned from Forest/Agriculture/Residential to I1, heavy industrial. The request has drawn the ire of many citizens in Bradley County who are not happy with how the rezoning will change the environment for all of Georgetown and for generations to come.
Future Bradley county land use plans of 2011, a map prepared by out of state consultants shows that thousands of more acres will be affected by the zoning request, not just Mrs Allens property. In accordance with the BCC 2035 Comprehensive Growth Plan many changes are ahead not only for Georgetown but all of Bradley County and surrounding regions.
Many citizens and groups in Bradley County have been warning of this invasion of your property rights for several years, we are only now beginning to see the wave of change that has been forecasted.
The Citizens of Georgetown are now saying, not in my community. You are not going to tyrannically take my property as a Government entity or change in my community without my input.
Plan to be there on Monday and show your support for the citizens of Georgetown as they stand for it’s rights. I am included in this group and it makes me proud to stand with this very well organized community as they tell their Government and it’s many NGO (Non Governmental Organizations) to stay out of our community. We happen to love our community minus the manufacturers, warehouses, distribution centers, equipment rental, leasing and storage facilities, asphalt refineries, mixing plants, recycling collection centers and outdoor shooting ranges. Leave our beautiful rural areas rural.
Hope to see you there on Monday. Come early it will be crowded.
Help us say NO to this zoning request!
One of the greatest threats to the good ole boy network is for a group of citizens to gather in large groups and tell them how to vote. Bradley County Citizens are starting to wake up and realize that the secret to overcoming tyranny is a loud well organized group of citizens speaking up for their rights.
On Monday, if the vote ends up in favor of the zoning request, let’s make it clear that their position and future political endeavors are in jeopardy. We will send your bags packing, remove and replace you with someone that will cide with and listen to the citizens of Bradley County.
