Economic Development??

April 14, 2011

                                            Economic Development??      Twice now, the Belgrade News has printed an article entitled “County Launches Initiative to Spur More Economic Development”.  Is this a joke?  Is this the same county government that has spent the last 6 years doing everything possible to discourage growth of any kind in the Gallatin Valley?      As a [...]

                                                DIDN’T TAKE LONG! December 27, 2010      Remember where I left off prior to Christmas with my bet that it would not take long for the Triad to jump back on the top-down zoning bandwagon.  The Chronicle on December 1, 2010 wrote about the “gravel  foes” and the possible GOMAG lawsuit that could [...]

                                                                Chronicle Misleads Again      An article in the December 1, 2010 issue of the Chronicle was, once again, misleading.  The article titled “Gravel Foes to Appeal Ruling” went on to describe the battle as being about “gravel pit” regulations and planning issues.      As anyone who has followed this debate knows, it is [...]
