The battle at Yorktown continues. I received an email from Anthony this week that he sent out to his supporters. To look at the proposed changes you would believe, as some have suggested, that this whole thing is personally motivated. They have now decided to spot zone (only re-zone certain communities) in order to fix the problem of people farming, Lord forbid, on their own land.
Anthony makes some good points in the open letter he sent to the York County Board of Supervisors,
"There are areas of even higher density than York Point and they are all Rural Residential (brown). You really think that just re-zoning one neighborhood out at the very end of Crab Neck (Seaford) is proper zoning practice? Look at the map: Dandy, Fish Neck, and Crab Neck are all either Rural Residential (RR brown) or Resource Conservation (RC green) and now just a tiny sliver of blue at the end you want to be R33 surrounded by a sea of RC or RR?
There are neighborhoods much denser than York Point, but they remain unchanged. Why?"
Then there is the point he makes that the re-zoning is out of step with the zoning plan the board approved just last year,
"Furthermore, this re-zoning proposal is not consistent with the Comprehensive Plan that you just approved on September 3, 2013 and therefore you are also proposing an out of cycle change to the comprehensive plan to support your spot zoning."
Consistency in government, why would he expect that? This is the problem we run into when we put people in charge who have no ethics or morals. This is often the argument against folks of a more libertarian or anarchist philosophy. But at least libertarians and anarchists don't have the power to take your property rights away.
I believe the people of York County need to put some politicians out of office.
In the mean time, Anthony and his supporters are having a pitchfork protest on May 14 at York Hall in historic Yorktown. If you live in the area and want to attend you can contact Anthony for more info by calling him - 757-268-2719
