Here is the video of the 2nd Board of Supervisors meeting for the month of November, 2014. Approved was the re zoning for a new mixed use development of apartments, retail and other use structures. It's my own opinion that anyone who buys or contracts land should be free to do what they want with it without having to bother with all this nonsense. I do not see where the area needs this project, but it's the freedom to do what one pleases with their land.
I am fully aware of arguments against this project and have made a few myself, however, its still an issue of freedom and liberty. If the developer wants to overload the market for rentals and has not been paying attention to the market, that's his or their issue. If the project goes belly up? So what? As long as it does not cost the tax payers anything, who cares? As long as there is no corporate welfare being paid into the project, it matters not.
Now if we take a close look at the market, we see that Gloucester continues to have businesses run from the county not into it. We have lost 2 restaurants, one bank branch and yet another automotive repair shop. What has come in to replace these lost businesses? Nothing. Part of the issue is all of the regulations the county wishes to impose in socialistic formats. Socialism does not work. If it did we would have business growth like never before seen.
Now those restrictions? Ignore them. They are unenforceable anyway unless of course you wish to consent to them. That's up to you. Then you pay out the nose and suffer massive restrictions that can break your bank account in no time at all.
