Zoning certificates are the wrong move

| September 10, 2020 1:00 AM

I am opposed to this idea of destroying our rural life in Bonner County, for money.

Zoning certificates can essentially destroy air quality; property values; wildlife; and the beauty of our wonderful rural life.

So, is that what some of our county commissioners and Planning & Zoning Department want to do? All for the chase of the "mighty" dollar, no matter what the cost to our environment?

I’ll make this as simple as possible, if you don’t like our rural county the way it is, take a hike! Leave, and take your so-called "plans" with you. No more mines, quarries, or dirty manufacturing processes. 

With my total lack of respect for what you’re planning to do,
